Possibly, but there is also the risk of accidentally tapping when you
only want to move the pointer but your finger happens to tremble a
little. (That's not about Parkinson's disease. Even to perfectly healthy
people it's difficult to hold absolutely still.)

Does anyone care to present some evidence showing that this works well
for people in general? Note that I'm not against changing this default.
I'm against changing it based on nothing but a baseless belief that it
won't bother people.
