Really most people? I have most of the time to do with assemblies, also have a 4K Monitor. Antialiasing here only ball and chain. Besides that, i remember, there are people out there, they have graphic card issues. When FreeCAD crashes on the startup only because of the antialiasing, they are never able to switch it off.
Just because FreeCAD currently can run on a tin-can with batteries doesn't mean it's a good idea in the first place. How many users actually have crashes because their hardware is so terrible that it can't support VBO or anti-aliasing? Even $200 cell phones can antialias. Even chromebooks can antialias, even raspberry pi's can antialias... etc.
I agree with @chrisb.
What is the scope to make a config that will work on "most used hardware" if one user that has a "problematic" hardware could not run the program to change settings.
An alternative would be to have a flag that will start FC with "safe settings" to permit at least a recovery if you make mistakes.
Most people in the world can not effort afford more then a tin can. And keep in mind, that because FreeCAD is free, many people who needs a CAD and can not effort afford a powerful PC, one of the first try (or the first try) will be FreeCAD.
A good compromise.
Just saying that the tessellation have more visual impact that as antialiasing.
