That would mean an extension would have to mimick so much behaviour.
So if an extension adds a setting to a forum's settings, it has to create a forum list or select.
So if an extension adds a permission, it has to mimick all permission options (per user, group, forum, etc).

I am not sure if you know what you're asking for extension developers to do.

And it would still not make sense after that.
Cause if one of those settings relies or overrides a default setting, the admin still ends up searching all over the acp to find why his default setting is not working. As the overriding / relying setting is not immediatly below it.

I paid my two cents, but I'll do so again.
Developers should write a comprehensive list of settings.
Admins should read carefully the said list.
Possibly add a 'details' option in the extension list.

I would also like to point out that the IDEAS is to suggest new FEATURES to the source code.

This instead has no relation with the above purpose being this idea something that's at the discretion of the authors of the extensions.

no, it is 100% your opinion. I may agree with you that is would be easier in some situations, but that is also, my opinion not 100% fact.

It's pretty logical that if all the possible places for the extension settings are under the extension tab, you will always easily find them.
