Winecfg contains potentially harmful configuration parameters (like native overrides) and are shown in the same way as useful configuration parameters like windows version or virtual desktop.
Maybe creating a box where a user can select it's level of knowledge in wine and hide part of the interface accordingly.

It could also be used to show warning informations when changing this level for the first time, for instance one saying to not link wine and a real windows installation when activating the folder tab or one explaining that overrides are "bad"

This might warn users playing with the buttons that it might break more things than it will solve and keep some of them from breaking there wine installation.

(or putting par of winecfg in another command like winecfg-wineguru ^^)
