This is more about people who want to use electric-indent-mode, but don't want
it changing previous defaults in a way that doesn't seem to be related to

I can imagine a new user experiencing this and having no clue that
electric-indent-mode is the reason: Because it is enabled by default for them
in 25.1 -- they never consciously turned it on to notice the difference in
behavior -- so they wouldn't know it's coming from that source.

Why is something like this being enabled by default, again? Or did I misread?
I would expect any kind of automated behavior like this to be opt-in.
