I think that this concerns are valid, though I would not mix it with claim

that editor developers controlling presets is wrong.

There is no real alternative, there is no an independent general preset,

and I would not expect to suddenly find people willing to maintain one in a 

long term.

Especially after excluding developers of editors.

There is https://github.com/simonpoole/beautified-JOSM-preset <https://github.com/simonpoole/beautified-JOSM-preset> but it is

- controlled by editor developer anyway

- has nearly no activity from people that are not developers of editors using it
