I don't think that's a valid general argument. It's possible to change,
for example, the files in /usr/share/groff/current/tmac so that groff
behaves differently in useful ways, but that doesn't mean I'm going to
make them configuration files and therefore implicitly support this
configuration. Some things may be regarded as code changes even if it
happens that they can be done in files that are more or less plain text.

"foo is not as configurable as it should be" is a wishlist bug, not a
release-critical bug.
