I've made several different proposals.  One of them includes that step.

They're all aimed at trying to stop changes in default behavior from
getting intentionally installed without giving at least the people on
emacs-devel a chance to object before it is in a release.

I realize that sometimes bug fixes cause a UI change as an
unintentional byproduct.  That's a different issue and I am not
trying to do address it.
