I can't think off the top of my head why you wouldn't want strict vars in code you intend to maintain, but I'm sure there is a justification sometimes.
I would care about proper scoping of variables (which also
implies using lexicals where lexicals ought to be used).
"use strict" doesn't enforce scoping. It's not a magical wand.
