I don't see why you can't just trash the banners if you don't want them. I don't think claiming you "didn't just want to trash them" them is real complaint. I'm lazy too, I don't wanna trash them, so I just stuff them in a chest and clear it out from time to time. If you feel like you will need the banners, store them and if you don't think you want them, trash them. (They're good decorations for farms, certain biomes, maybe hang them around the world so you get buffs in certain places.) It isn't like you're forced to keep them, you make the decision to not trash or store them, and then claim they're cluttering your inventory. I agree, it could be better and the other system could be argued as better, but that doesn't mean it's "GAME BREAKING," as you put it.
