Is there any particular reason for it to be hardcoded? Apart from the
fact that /well it just is this way right now/ I mean.
That'd be useful information for anyone interested in changing it. Then
you can still just tell them to write a patch if they care that much
('cause even in org-mode-land patches don't write themselves just yet)
[I just had the most awesome idea for a feature request].
If it's "just" about inheriting from a variable in some 300 places it
could at least be discussed.
