Just because Emacs allows customization doesn't mean that it ought to be
customized upfront.

1. Emacs is usable without or with just minimal customization.

2. Let customization appear naturally and in an effort-less way.  Let it
   grow.

3. I will not allow my neighbour to tell me how I arrange my furniture
   in my house.
