:Overall, this is a good idea. However, it can't apply to

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.
