I agree with you but for different reasons. "Always," because it's easier is just dumb, 'cause someone will find it easier not to.
I'm with you on not modifying the default behavior. The reason is, most people know the default behavior first, and the non default second.
I.e. ~/abc/ before ~/abc/i.
To make it a company standard for some reason within the company is great. For instance if there was a training manual that taught /smx first. I personally think it's silly, but hey, there may be a valid reason out there somewhere.
Teach people the basics and then push familiarity and standards WITH reasons that give flexibility and ability to do their job.
