Noone asks nvidia to violate thermal design requirements. If card must be slowed down due to overheat no problem, driver can/should ignore those "better control" user constraints.
But when card is not overheated, driver should follow user request.
After all, there are already user-switchable "maximum performance" mode (GPUPowerMizerMode=1), this feature request is about "intermediate" mode.

People have had various success with tricks like the xorg magic or calling nvidia-settings -q all every 10 seconds or playing a silent sound file permanently in the background or things like that.

The only real way to do this is to flash a modded bios where the frequencies for each level are adapted. Of course such a procedure has it's own risks.
Obviously, both cannot be qualified as solution.

It won't work because coolbits are unavailable on my gtx 460

I'm the OP of that thread; my choice to NOT buy a 470 was the inability to over/underclock that card under linux and the higher power consumption.
I went to a used 9800GT (60 euros) and i'm really happy now.

Is that's what nvidia want us to do? Here i am.

When I was buying gtx460 I wasn't aware of unavailability of coolbits and this problem. Now, I'm considering selling my card and buying something from AMD as their drivers have greatly improved (even open source drivers work very well on my business notebook).
