It's not for Aunt Tillie.
It's for an average system administrator who compiles his own kernel.

CONFIG_BLOCK=n will only be for the "the kernel must become as fast as

There's no reason for getting linux-kernel swamped with
"my kernel doesn't boot" messages by people who accidentally disabled
this option.
