    It is intended to be an option turn off all "extra features".

On what criterion are these features "extra"?

    But most important, running emacs -Q when debugging redisplay problems
    makes it much easier to know what's going on.

Why does the blinking cursor relate to this?

    Just because we cannot find a long name for it -- that's silly, IMO!

The difficulty in finding a long name for it reflected a lack of
apparent coherence of the functionality of the option.  Nobody
could see what it was good for.  That is why I thought of removing
it or changing it.
