    Sure it does, because it means you can simply commit a change to the
    default assignment for that sysctl rather then backing the whole thing
    out to unbreak the general developer community.  That saves a lot of
    time and removes the 'oh hell, I have to track this down quickly!'

    Sometimes features in early boot can be adjusted by breaking into DDB
    and w/l changing the sysctl variable, but perhaps not in this case.
