You've been asked repeatedly to provide a use-case and have failed to do so.

You seem to have missed (or you're deliberately ignoring) comment 11.

> Bug 52442 comment 14 is probably a good summary of that rationale.

No; cf. bug 53069 comment 2.

This comment makes no sense.

No kidding. However, it doesn't make sense to change the extension default or
specify the setting in Wikimedia's configuration if the configuration variable
should not exist at all. A global configuration variable requires a use-case,
otherwise it should be removed. You still have not provided any use-case here.
