The big deal if use strict is removed is that it is only a matter of time before somebody decides to try to "fix" a bug in production code without bothering to re-enable strict. When that happens, and it probably will in most deployment environments, the risks of not using strict will far outweigh any potential slowdown from using it.
Besides, in what situation is the speed of an accounting application ever going to be more important that its correctness. I'd much rather have the code dealing with my money protected by the safety afforded by strict than have the code run a little faster.
Update: changed "executions" to "operations" in the first paragraph.
