While I support this completely, I also think a lot of pain in configuring a kernel would be relieved by providing more user-centric information in the help text. Most help documents what an option does (more or less), but rarely does it give any indication of why you might want it to do that. I have a text file that I've slowly filled over the last 6 years with pointers to all the random emails, references, blog posts, LWN articles, and research I've had to do to just figure out if I actually need to enable a particular option or not.
I know the kernel is very complex and needs to serve the needs of all types of users and many options are going to require you to do a little research to be able to make an educated choice, but for the basic stuff it'd be nice to see a "Disabling this will make consolekit/powertop/systemd puke on your shoes." or "Here's how to determine if your system supports this kind of device." once in a while.
