This invokes a question that is summed up as; "When dealing with a suggestion or issue, who should you be listening to, yourself or other people as experienced as yourself?"
Well, I know this has a subjective answer. A lot of people will say that the author rules over the commentary of other people, where other people will say (this is probably where I stand) that a mapper can not overrule consensus.
At this point, at least with richardfeder, I can agree to disagree over this.
@richard, in hindsight that comment on IRC was totally uncalled for and I apologize for that. In the stepmania communities I come from, most people choose smooth patterns over anything else so that it's more accessible to play on higher song speeds. Obviously here that can't exactly be the same since DT is only a 1.5x multiplier and can't be adjusted, as well as not giving any actual advantages.
