I strongly disagree. It is a lot more convenient to pick a brush of the
right size from a list of brushes than to always scale the brush.
Also we simply can't remove the standard brushes because that would
break lots of scripts. As long as there's no way to resize brushes from
scripts, we have to keep the standard brushes with their names. Perhaps
we can try to improve this for the 2.8 release.

Sure, that's why we keep asking for someone to improve the collection of
default brushes collection in GIMP for some years now. So far there
hasn't been much interest. We also don't have a maintainer for the
Gimp-developer mailing list
