 Replying to [comment:8 scribu]:
 > It's a slippery slope. Even for a text input, you would still want to
 add a description, which would require a variable.

 That reminds me of another issue I have with the current settings API,
 which is the inability to pass any extra arguments back to the sanitize or
 display callbacks for registered settings, making it nearly impossible to
 reuse callback functions.
