Just as an indirectly contributing Nitro observer, I'd say keep gen since it does make things easier on beginners, but more importantly just pick one layout and use it consistently.

Uber-wizard-DIY types could obviously still go build their own layouts and avoid gen, but it's really confusing for Nitro newbies to have six different tutorials with six different ways to organize, name, and layout files.

Just pick one that's reasonable, use gen to implicitly enforce it, and then make sure folks know they don't *have* to use this, it's just easier if you don't care.
