Sure, when it *seems* that a certain value is likely to be right in the
(possibly vast) majority of case, doesn't it make sense for that to be
the default and let people tune differently when they have a specific
Yes, but doing that across all of Fedora is pointless. What works for
the majority of Server users won't necessarily work for Cloud or
Workstation. Also, the end user's ability to even discover that it's
tunable varies greatly from one Edition to the next. One could expect
sysadmins knowing about this and changing the default on their Server
install. The Workstation end user may not be as low-level detail
aware and could just suffer with poor performance because they think
that's the only option.

I mean, that's fine too.
It's more realistic.
