It's better to be strict by default. If people only turned on the warnings that they thought were useful, they wouldn't know about the other warnings that are helpful that they discovered by mistake.

People use lint and it's hardcore stringent by default, too.

    As a coding practice, I agree. As a marketing device, I don't. First impressions count and missing RCS variables probably shouldn't be the first impression people get from the Perl::Critic website.
