The trouble is that using a preferences box is not a natural way for many designers to work. It is too detached from the visual decision making that designers are comfortable with. You are forcing them to make another mapping stage in their thinking. They want to put *that* over there (direct), but this makes them estimate how many millipedes it is to move *that* over there (indirect). They can do it, but this mapping makes the use of the softeware less comfortable, less intuitive.
