 > With [attachment:28672.3.diff] we'd generate doing it wrong notices on
 the core implementation and every time a field relies on the default
 section, which is not good. We don't have a function to register a
 settings page, so we can't really throw a doing it wrong when a page is
 not registered. Pages are registered with the section or field that are
 registered to it.
 > Which is why I'm saying we should probably not do anything at all here.
 We wouldn't be making things better.

 I see now what you're getting at now. Yeah, I'm with you on not doing
 anything here. Closing as wontfix.
