Well, while it's a worthy goal to try to auto-detect everything
automatically, I think that to have best performance in all cases,
configuration options are needed.

What people could work on is a centralized, WineHQ-managed database of
options (some sort of Application Database but automated). Basically, people
would connect to this database and get their Wine configuration
automatically updated to get best performance on 'officially supported'
games / applications.

The only real problem I would see with that scheme would be if multiple
applications have the same name (like for example 'game.exe') as this would
render the whole 'override' stuff useless.
