Maybe a compromise: let's make a declaration that tells the compiler
whether it can make 'the assumption'.  The conservative default for
this declaration is that the assumption can not be made.  When we have
the experience that almost every file carries a declaration to reverse
the default, we can consider reversing the default by default.
