Thanks for your report. I think we should provide config keys for at least some of these.

I've also noticed that there are also some commands which are not available as 
switches in the command line:
In the command line you have the -e / --execute option, which allows you to provide any wgetrc command through the command line.

#dot_bytes = n
#dot_spacing = n
#dots_in_line = n
This could be added, although I'm not sure it's that useful to specify in command line.

#netrc = on/off
#robots = on/off
#show_all_dns_entries = on/off

Just thought I might assist with some of those apparent inconsistencies 

In particular, it would be nice to be able to:

*         Apply regex to URLs in the command file
*         Ignore robots as a command line switch
AFAIK it is a willful decision not to provide an direct command line switch to ignore robots.txt. You can use -e robots=off
