It is the same approach used in GRASS: in fact, it is better (even if
not elegant, I agree) to be able to decide which options should be
exposed as default, and which ones as advanced). In fact it would be
also good to add a general option "user/power user"; in the first case
only default options will be exposed, in the second the full options.

I think filtering is often the easiest option.

All the best.
