When upgrading the Domino Server from one version to the next the installation process always adds standard tasks that have been removed from the Notes.INI back in.  I'd prefer that the upgrade process report that items such as DESIGN or UPDALL have been removed and either display a dialogue that they are missing or prompt to readd. 
Every time we upgrade or patch we have to touch every Notes.INI to remove the Design and UPDALL tasks as we prefer to manage these tasks using program document as it provides additional flexibility.  In the Notes.INI the only way to implement the change is to restart the Domino server, executing the tasks via a program document allows us to modify the time that we would like the task to execute without requiring a Domino restart.

FYI, adding SetupLeaveServerTasks=1 to notes.ini ONCE means you don't have to touch notes.ini every time. (But something like you describe would be nice, of course.)

In some environments, we don't want design to run at all in the domain except to segregate the templates and design task on to a specified server, as part of a multi-tiered pilot/dev/production phased approach of application development.

I would also use the SetupLeaveServerTasks as described here:
