My gut feeling says: Yes, this is an improvement and should be there by
default. IIUC the reason why this has to be discussed is because that
could change/break existing scores, right?

If so, could you please think about an example where the patch would
have a negative impact that can't reasonably be caught by convert-ly?
Just because you two are much more into the topic, so that could help us
others understand ...
