Just my humble opinion, but hidden system files just smacks of the
Sony DRM rootkit debacle.
Just as /etc/bashrc is not hidden, whereas ~/.bashrc is, *why*
should any *system* files be hidden?
Nevertheless, IMO these changes and arguments should be made upstream.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
