I don't necessarily agree.  In fact, I remember reading the standards
for one of the TPC benchmarks and it said you were not supposed to
specifically tune for the test.  Any submission, including one with
stock settings, should be given consideration (and the .conf settings
should be submitted along with the benchmark results).  This can only
help to increase the body of knowledge on configuring the database.
