Except that with the centralized approach we can have an opt-out policy
after some time (ie use hardening options by default except for packages
that have set no-hardening).

My interest in centralizing those is simplifying any transition in
default flags that Debian would want to do. User customization is nice
but it's not what motivates me to push this forward.
