So instead you're recommending an approach that forces the user to
choose *before* reconfiguring between
 a) not being told what the maintainer thought was a sensible default
 b) not being told how he has currently configured the package

I don't see why that would help anyone.

Which is not terribly helpful to a user who wants to make an informed
choice *between* the safe default and his own prior customizations.
