I too agree.  But for those who can remember such things...
Positive args can yank multiple times.
Negative args can retrieve prior kills.
Even if you *can* remember X number of kills you're not likely
to ever find it more convenient to yank the (kill-ring-max - n)th
entry (which isn't even documented to work anyway).

Yank can be changed like this:
;  (insert-for-yank (current-kill (cond
;                                 ((listp arg) 0)
;                                 ((eq arg '-) -2)
;                                 (t (1- arg)))))
   ((listp arg) (insert-for-yank (current-kill 0)))
   ((eq arg '-) (insert-for-yank (current-kill -2)))
   ((> arg 0)   (dotimes (x arg) (insert-for-yank (current-kill 0))))
   (t (insert-for-yank (current-kill (- arg)))))
