Thank you for the advice, João. If it's decided on not flipping the
default, I will probably implement the change for myself. Considering
many projects that have adopted RuboCop specify their own
configuration in their roots, I'd probably check and enable in such
cases and leave the rest for .dir-locals.el.

Cheers,
P.
