So knowledge is ugly?  It is obviously so much better to not know what
is going on so that if it doesn't work you don't have to worry about it
because you know nothing that could help you to solve it so it isn't
your problem of course.

Now being able to just turn on the details when something is wrong, and
have them no there the rest of the time might be OK.  On the other hand
you boot once every few months so who cares what the boot messages look
like. :)
