With most zsh completion things, the established position is to include
them and leave it up to the user to disable what they don't want with
styles. There are things I wouldn't include like deprecated options but I
do tend to include --help and --version. Completing them can be useful.
So if you find them to be useless noise, you can set:
zstyle ':completion:*:options' ignored-patterns '--(help|usage|version)'
You might prefer to apply the hidden style to them using a tag-order
style with labels.
Unfortunately, where the option is just -h, -?, -v or -V your options
are limited. We perhaps need some way to select matches by description.
Or we could expand the groups functionality in _arguments to make, e.g.
the '?' group special.
