The thing isn't sold as only usable in lowest common denominator mode.
I wholeheartedly agree. Plenty of us Kobo users are Kobo users because we want to fiddle. We want the advanced font fine-tuning, we want to load our own fonts also, we want to use plugins, we want to use SD cards, we're power readers and power users - and this is why we're avoiding the lowest-common-denominator market-leader Amazon products in the first place.

This sort of thing might be what Advanced menus are for, if a reasonable compromise can't be found. Plug-n-play one-book-at-a-time readers can avoid Advanced menus, and the rest of us can use them for the finer control we're looking for.
