No, it's just more difficult to calculate, which makes it a bit harder to
implement, but if decimals are allowed you still only need one control to allow
both behaviours, and may set almost any frequency (rounded to the minute

The problem is that for user B the 'special account' frequency is conditioning
the global setting, and forever, as she has to remember that on every new
account. That's pretty counter-intuitive.

In that case would be better to put the final calculated frequency so the user
doesn't need to do the math.
