Sounds like opening up too many special cases, and the question which 
objects should be treated that way and which shouldn't.

Why not simply output a warning whenever user-specified bounding boxes 
are removed, regardless of object type?

If a user decides that he needs the bounding box, he can then just 
change the .ini file or command line parameters accordingly and live 
happily ever after.
