Sorry, I'm a bit late in replying to this one.

I'm a bit reluctant to throw jitter overboard entirely (even for an
individual sampling method, particularly the default one). When a scene
contains other sources of image noise anyway (such as subsurface light
transport, jittered area lights, blurred reflections or focal blur),
increasing media jitter may actually be a better choice performance-wise
than cranking up the media sampling quality parameters.
