 Replying to [comment:17 Stagger Lee]:
 > My humble opinion is you should adopt Simple Image Sizes plugin in the
 core. It should be easy for beginners, they cannot use filters and
 > Dont go Joomla way, continue on same path as Drupal. (fast not right
 comparation, Joomla doesnt have image sizes at all)

 The goal is to to follow the core philosophy of decisions, not options. In
 that respect, if (we're still waiting on more statistics from hosting
 providers for media) the main settings for images aren't used because
 people let the themes and plugins dictate them, there's no reason to keep
 those settings if less than 1% of existing users use it for new installs.
 Plugins like Simple Image Sizes provide a way for those who do need a UI.
