Question Engine out acceleration height

One debate is whether is what altitude to select for engine out.

I am interested in learning more about the performance implications of selecting different altitudes

I personally prefer to select 2000 feet rather than 1500 as an engine out acceleration altitude.

Why ?

If I have a engine out with severe damage and engine fire, it gives me more time to complete the Ecam actions before having to push to level off, if we have to push to level off at 1500, we must stop the ecam actions, and cannot discharge the bottle until after cleaning up the aircraft, depending on your SOP and Airbus procedure.

Being lower than maximum engine out acceleration altitude, you delay discharging the bottle.
