You haven't given any rationale at all for making it an option - all
the rationale in your mail is rationale for just changing it flat-out
by default.


Those questions need to be analyzed when adding any option.

To answer the question, it can be an option if you can give rationale
_for making it an option_ which is not the same as rationale _for
doing things differently_.
