AFAIK, no one has proposed doing that for Emacs 30.  Emacs 31 is still
up for discussion, I assume.

Enabling it by default could only be done after careful consideration.
I proposed enabling it back in 2020, and I still agree with what Stefan
Monnier said back then:

direction.  For now, I'd recommend that people check out the state it's
currently in on master, and report any issues they see.
