At least for me the points you raised were helpful. I think it's very
good to have someone playing the devil's advocate on such essential
decisions to be taken.

That said, I got Simon's reply the way that he and other core devs
really encourage the discussion but have done some evaluation
previously. But as it's an ongoing process where the team in charge
still has to explain some of their presets.
So you shouldn't feel scorned for raising issues and points.
