'cpoptions' is for things to behave Vi compatible. It's not for
something that wasn't present in Vi.
It's a choice whether "ge" should behave like "w" and "b" to stop in an
empty line, or be the opposite of "e", which doesn't stop in an empty
line. I think it's better to leave it as it is. Changing it or adding
an option that changes it behavior will not improve the usability of
I know that "cw" doesn't work logically, but I'm used to it and wouldn't
want it to work differently now. I think most long-term Vi and Vim
users have the same opinion.
