To put it another way, the goal should be to reduce the attack surface of the tz database to non-technical complaints.  There is certainly no reason to consider *increasing* the attack surface to be a good thing by itself, so, unless there's some significant benefit to increasing it, we shouldn't increase it and, unless there's some significant disadvantage to decreasing it, we should try to decrease it.
