That's no argument against either one. (I agree that some of the default warnings are questionable, but that's a different discussion.) Plenty of things have the wrong defaults: Unix crypt, C's string handling, Perl 5 optimizing its defaults for awk-replacement one-liners instead of programs, and more.
