I think you answered your own question. Obviouisly it can not know, it is up to the requirements writer to specify the algorithum.

With the exception of geocacheing, hikers and up do not need a new trackpoint for a < 5 meters.

With Auto, they seem to throw out track points if moving in a straight line. This could be inhanced to add time and detect slow down, stop, and speed up.

If one size (60/76 seems to work) does not fit all, 2-4 profiles for various applications would work for 99.99% of users.
