Haven't thought things through, but my gut feeling is that it is on
the other side of the line. We could of course add more features and
over-engineered mechanisms, and the implementation may end up to be
even modular and clean, but I cannot answer "Yes" with a confidence
to the question "Does such a fine grained control help the users?"
and cannot answer "If so in what way?" myself.
