Sure, for most uses both developers and users will desire a default
sampler that just works and needs no tweaking. Additional properties
to configure some of the samplers will make it harder both for users
of GUIs as well as developers implementing or using operations that
use the samplers. Fewer presets that cover normal use cases is
probably better than many; this trimming down of the presets might be
done in GUI layers code as well.

The names for samplers would need some serious thought, linear, cubic
and lanczos in current GIMP is already too techical for many users,
most people would have no clue what "box" refers to in the suggested
names. When exposes as for instance a drop down in the GUI these names
need to be translatable into other languages as well.
