Well.  People could still put (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist ...)
statements into their ~/.emacs.

The problem that I, personally, see with inhibit-default-init is that
it's an all-or-nothing thing.  There is no way to say "I like most of
what default.el does, but please skip this setting here".

That's why I my site-start.el contains a lot of functions, each
setting up a specific package.  Then my users can pick and choose.
(Or choose and pick?)

A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
