To be honest, I do not care much either way. And _if_ this was changed as a
result of a discussion (or a bug) that said: "Hey, we have a shiny new start
center. Let's all the users see it!", I would not say anything. But it was not,
so I see it as a regression.

Well, we tend to assume the majority of linux users gets libreoffice through
their distribution. And the last time this come up, more distro maintainers
were for disabling than against it. If that has changed, so be it. We patched
it in Fedora before; we can do it again...
Note that math has been hidden since 3.5 and nobody has protested. Startcenter
was only hidden in 4.1, but I do not remember any bugs related to that
