I can see what you are saying, and the software designers have at least 
provided such options, but so many people are seeing a web interface and 
expecting that they should be able to manage all the configuration that 
regard interfacing with their users from there.  I think as much as 
possible user configuration options should be available in the admin web 
interface.  I hope if is considered for future versions.
