Why doesn't the Moonlander ship with "outer" legs?

Sharp-eyed customers will note that the Moonlander only ships with "inner" legs, to allow you to tent the board. It does, however, have metal threads on the outside for a set of "outer" legs. So, why don't we ship those legs with the board — why are those threads plugged?

The short answer is wrist extension. If we provided these legs by default, the obvious thing to do with them would be to angle up the back side of the board. This creates an opportunity for pain over time, and isn't very ergonomic. So rather than include them with the board, we decided to offer them as an option. We don't use them ourselves and don't particularly recommend them, but if your use case calls for these legs, they're available on our accessory section.
