If it isn't made the default, I think it is fairly harmless to have
a variable you could set to trigger David's proposed behavior. I
doubt many people are going to use it, but if they do, they've
explicitly chosen they want it, and it isn't in general our business
to tell people how they should enjoy editing. Emacs is a highly
programmable system, and if this the (non-default!) behavior is what
someone wants, well, adding it means that people don't have to write
the hack to do it on their own.

That said, the default has to follow the principle of least surprise I
