Ah! Agreed. And I apologize if I gave that impression.
However, the way it has turned out to be used in the practical world
means that I would rather disable it, then selectively enable bits of
it, rather than the other way around. Even if I had the facilities to
do so. And the phrase 'putting the cart before the horse' comes to mind.

am willing to carte blanche enable it, then try to, after the fact,
contain it to only its useful bits.
