Really?  On the contrary, I'd assume most users will want to set it once
and for all with a (setq display-line-numbers-major-tick 16)
and then will be stumped why that setting doesn't seem to work (hint:
it only applies to the *scratch* buffer).

Maybe there will be a few special buffers/modes where they will set it
to a different value, but these will likely be exceptions.
