As soon as you expose a feature you have to support it, which means 
documentation, compatibility issues, user handholding, etc. Since the 
optimizer trace output doesn't mean anything to someone who doesn't 
know the guts of the optimizer, I would say we're better off just 
letting developers know it exists.
