I would rather have my system slow to an unusable crawl if I was confident that it would come out of it again at some point. Even then, I can still press the reset button, which is what I have usually ended up doing in OOM situations anyway.
On your home system this makes some sense, but all this goes out the window once you have to take service levels into account.
