I don't quite follow that argument. The choices are important. Imagine
you are saving a multi-layered image to the GIF format. You get to
choose between saving an animation, saving a flattened or a merged
version. That choice is not trivial to avoid.
Changing these things is not trivial. Both from the user interface point
of view (writing the spec) and from an implementation point of view. I
don't think we want to address this for 2.6. But we can very well try to
get it done for 2.8.
