Interesting stuff, but I am going to disagree with changing these hidden parameters.

That is because unless you have good reason to change them, what is the reason to do so?

Oracle makes it unnecessary to tweak a parameter, and we replace it with two more.

If your database is performing well, then there isn't much reason to 'tune' it.
