I also disable them, but if they are "expert only" options,
then the experts know how to disable them :-).

Of more concern is stuff like gdm having (apparently) hard coded
options for starting the X server that always add -nolisten tcp.
There was formerly a way an expert could disable that, but as near
as I can tell the expert options now are: Rebuild from source,
removing the -nolisten option, or replace the X server with a
program that diddles the option string, and then execs the
original X server. Both of those options suffer from not
playing nice with updates :-).
