Yes, these arguments are clearly bogus. There's currently a hidden
preference that exists for Windows that allows you to turn off the
tooltips. You might want to go that route instead.

I don't think the duplication here is a problem. I certainly don't want
to have to open up a conversation with someone to get information that
used to be in the tooltip. For that matter, the infopane is optional and
I have it off.
Is there a particular problem you're trying to solve here?
