There are lots of par options already and lots more could be added.
However, it would become overwhelmingly huge.  I think it's best to
leave it as it is.

Whenever I make a publication graphic, I nearly always use mtext to
get the label exactly appropriate (along with ylab = "").  That works
very well IMHO.
