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
