I think you are correct. The settings that Mike mentioned
were listed already under the regedit-only already. I think
they should remain there.

I think this is a good idea. In general speaking, this per-app
settings is a hack required by poor implementation. Windows
doesn't need it, so we should be fine without it. Therefore:
-- we should try to minimize it's use
-- eliminate it in the future
-- not encourage people to use it, unless required
Thus cluttering the interface with it would be a bad plan IMO.
Having it in a separate tab can keep us honest to not
overuse it, and to more easily get rid of it in the future.
