I disagree with this reason for two reasons:
1) While it's true that there has been work in that direction, I don't
   think it's entirely fair to say it can be done today. Skinnable
   viewports still have some issues, and I'm not convinced we have all
   infrastructure in place to fully implement the default lists.

2) Unless the setting itself stays, this would require hand-editing
   themes to change the spacing. I don't think colour and font settings
   are useless, and this is really the same thing.

Maybe. Has someone done the work though?
