of the default scores. −4 and −8 caused issues that would never have arisen had the defaults
been −0.4 and −0.8. Or even −1 and −2.

The scores have been decreased in the upcoming proposed release ruleset.
 Not to -0.4 and -0.8, but they're no longer -4 and -8.  I'm sure that
we'll get to (it's been -4 and -8 for years, we're not in a huge rush to
do anything now) decreasing them in the 3.2.x sa-update ruleset also
once we've firmed up an opinion of what they should be going forward.

Please stop beating the -4 and -8 horse.  We agree.
