Based on the Seth-Duncan exchange it sounds like this is up in
the air and the conservative default may well be adopted.  I do
agree that affecting thousands of documents to help find bugs
is less than kind, so it would seem that the time to change the
default back to the conservative value is now.

Any data on the impact on the devel builds?  Any vignettes that
are notably badly affected?
