I could see corporations having their IT departments do some tuning with
Firefox for other employees, adjusting the tradeoff between memory usage
and multi-tab performance, tuning Firefox to the computer and to fit
with other programs running on those same PCs.
For home users, for an option that maybe 10% of the home users would
access, it's better if they can use an Options page, which is less risky
than having them get into about:config where they could accidentally
mess up options that could have a much more drastic result.
Also, it is a whole lot easier for me to remember something like
Options -> Advanced -> Performance than to remember about:config's
