Hi Afri, thanks for the write-up!

I have a question, you write:

The configuration 07 is something users often ask for but should be highly discouraged in production use. This setting is comparable to a pruned bitcoin node as historical blocks are partially not available.

Could you explain why this should be discouraged?

 

Because it does not hold historic blocks. And you can only verify the integrity of the chain, the transactions, the state, and balances, if you have access to all historic block data. That is available in Configurations 00-06, and partially in 08, but not in 07.
