What people set in their custom settings will depend on their own shooting needs. Hardly see how this will be a "reference" except for people who want to be copycats.

What kind of reference do you expect? These are settings that everybody can set according his/her own needs, predefining a (e.g. typical) set of settings instead of going through menus and using the dials. If you don't need it it's also fine. You don't waste money by not using these Custom Settings.

It is for frequently-used items that users use them often in their varuous shooting modes to save time and inconvenience and when they are required at the moment of recall.

I find thus preset features useful, and I can focus more on shooting than always check settings.

Like I wait to shoot a subject with and without flash, I just turn a dial and shoot again.
If I want to be in the picture with the subject, I just turn another dial, pass the camera to someone to shoot us.
All this with preset "safe" setting for my needs just by a turn of the dial.
