I am not using servo recoil so in theory I can just leave the jumper in. But then I noticed that at least one programming doesn't work when you are not in programming mode. I haven't got a chance to try it out in more detail but when I am not in programming mode, I can't switch the recoil mode. Not something you do everyday anyway.
If you have a chance, try it out and see if you get the same thing. I think it is the power button and when you are not in programming mode the led just flashes 5 times.
After I have a chance to try it out I might just do what you said, leave the jumper in since it does work even in programming mode.

Possibly all might be able to take advantage of the other features the Clark board offers, & then it's a quick switch of presets to battle with different standards than just those used by Tamiya, like having ammo count, turning off battle damage, making all tanks equal in hits, etc.
Since many tankers are usually good enough people who also like to share their own tanks with others who don't have their own tank, & many times with people who have hardly used or possibly never used an IR tank before, it would be great to keep one preset on the tank as you would need to use it for battling, but then set one of the presets up for a beginner which gives the tank more hits than the typical class that tank would normally have, maybe turn off battle damage altogether, or in the case of the TK22 boards, turn off momentum, all to help the beginner out a bit so they don't get fragged too quickly in a battle where there are a lot more experienced RC tankers.
I am doing the last option, & I do save my settings to preset 1 & set up preset 2 for beginners. So in cases like these, having the presets is quick & easy, & a very useful feature.

Having 3 or 4 presets on the board is a great idea but that adds one thing, Cost. Price goes up, I know memory is cheap but that is only one part of a boards cost.
MichaelC your thing that you may have tried to program is probably not a feature of the TK20.
The TK22 has that advantage of having more preferences that a person can set.
When you are joining programming mode, 2 would simulate a hit and 3 would simulate a machine gun hit so there is difference between programming and and non programming mode for these buttons for sure.
