Building with just the default options seems good enough, as long as

Huh? I thought you were arguing that there should be binary packages
prebuilt with various options, such as dasher with and without gnome.
Not me, that would be too much trouble for too little benefit. Just add
options and I'm happy to type "make" myself.
'sane' is not a useful word.
That's a different discussion, but I wanted to hint that picking default
options could be done well ("what would 95% of users want?", like you
said) or poorly ("might as well enable everything" (or nothing)) without
going into a whole new rant.
