The issue is that “soft wrap” is not a global boolean choice. For 
example I like comments to be soft wrapped in source code, where soft 
wrap is otherwise disabled. We also soft wrap list items in Markdown 
documents, etc., which is why these settings are in bundles, since they 
are sort of language specific.

That said, how to disable soft wrapped comments is one of the most 
frequently asked questions, so it’s likely a bad default that I’m 
considering changing.
