I guess I'm curious: why would this break apps?

If your apps were relying on a specific user setting to show/hide icons, wasn't it technically broken already? There was no guarantee of the value of the setting.

It seems that reducing the amount of user configurations an app developer would have to test in is a great idea for all.

The point for an app developer would be:
Before: I set on one place, every button will show images
After: I have to go through all my code, looking for buttons to set the option, and worst, If I want to make it an option for my user, I have to recreate the settings scheme in my application.

You certainly can see this when we are talking of huge application like Evolution right ?
