Pruning command line flags in the next major release

I'm considering removing several command line flags for the 2.1.0 release (planned for early June). The command line option list is quite large and I'd like to clean it up to include only stuff that really needs to be there versus things that can easily live only in the configuration file.

These are the ones on the chopping block. Note that these are NOT being removed from the package altogether; rather, you would only be able to access them from the configuration file and not via the command line. Please let me know if this would cause anyone a huge hardship.

-a (peer list)
-c (canonicalizations)
-C (exception handling options)
-d (domains to sign)
-D (sign subdomains)
-h (add identifying header field)
-i (internal hosts list)
-I (external hosts list)
-k (key file)
-L (minimum signature requirements)
-m (MTA names)
-M (macro tests)
-o (header fields to omit from signing)
-P (pid file)
-r (verify RFC compliance)
-R (generate failure reports)
-s (selector)
-S (signing algorithm)
-T (DNS timeout)
-U (POP authentication database)
