The question was not meant as an ideological one ;D more in the sense of gameplay. The absolute minimum makes you to "must" build the exactly same buildings in a row. yes, maybe 2, 3 woodcutters would be too much but I'd stll prefer choices in economy from a very little start.

Simply no. If you want to ask the question for gameplay, just pick another start condition. This one is clearly defined and represents a consecutive cornercase. If it would be changed, it would be only a matter of (short) time until someone would ask for this again. Even without knowing that this has already been existing.
It is really obvious, if you think about it.

Simply no, as the question is about the gameplay

If you want something that is hardcode but offers more than one way to solve, just play Discovery with 3 colonies.

The point of Poor Hamlet is that it gives players the absolute minimum needed to start an economy. If there is even 1 ware or worker that could be removed from the starting condition, it should be removed. That's what a minimal start is all about.

pushed poor_hamlet and struggling_outpost startconditions for amazons. Still we need village, fortified village, trading outpost, discovery and new world.
