Why Brave Being Insistent About 6 Tiles?

Everybody on forums wants more than 6 tiles on the homepage. Why still Brave being insistent about this? Is there any logic behind this? Is this that much hard?

On nightly desktop they are adding 6 more, so 12 total, despite I think 18 is best…
On android 4 is still the max as far as I know and it should change to at least 12
