This may or may not be a good idea for the end user. Some folks like choice and analysis, and others want a fixed recipe. I cannot hazard a guess to what percentages of FreeCAD newbies might fall in either category. There is an old saying, "I just want to know what time it is. Don't tell me how to build a watch."
I think what you try to do is ambitious, but that should not deter you!
I am a newbie and what you are proposing is along the lines how I approach learning FreeCAD. For example, I find it useful to think about the different ways to do a hollow cylinder. (I want to do a tutorial on that -- so this idea is taken!
) Another example, I want to do a part that is symmetrical to 2 axes. The recommended way it seems is to make a solid first and then to mirror that. However, I also tried to mirror/merge sketches first to understand why this is not such a good idea... However, learning this way makes for (much) slower progress in the beginning and is somewhat frustrating if you need to get a design done.
