JD brought up a rare, but still kind of silly reason... as there are generally noise ordnances based on time of day
I said it was rare, not silly. Noise ordinances are typically municipal, and would not apply to a neighborhood in vaguely rural vaguely urban unincorporated county land. Nor do they reduce the likelihood of a cranky and interfering neighbor abusing the local regulatory and law enforcement agencies from harassing disliked neighbors. Most of the time these "neighborhoods" comprise hobby farms, and do not have a full range of municipal services like waste removal, or sewer and water, either.
I further put it to you that words like "fringe" imply condescension and ostracization, taking an admonishment of disagreed upon behavior into the realm of bullying. I am not always right. But, neither are you.
"Need" isn't enough, for a lot of things. "Want" isn't, either.

- No single individual needs a 4 bedroom house.
- No one needs to see an action/horror/thriller movie.
I believe I've established there are a VAST
