    I thought this feature don't have a big impact on embedded.
    At First, 7K is not important but as time goes by, it could be huge
    with very small size feature for server or desktop.

    So I wanted to add it with optionally. :)

    In future, embedded also have a big ram then we can remove optional
    config completely, I think.
