Those that we look at had a GUI in Gnome at one point to change them. Also the 
set of settings has not been very stable. There is no GUI in current Gnome to 
change them, so they aren't really the place where a user can easily tweak 

So in 99% (figure from air) of the cases these settings are never changed. It 
is not worth it to track a setting that with high probability will be removed 
or change name/place within two years.
