I'm not sure you're wrong - but I'm also not sure you're right; there
_are_ contexts where such a thing is reasonable and useful (memory
allocators and kernel internals come to mind), so at the very least it
needs to be disableable.

There's also historical precedent arguing for leaving it as a warning.
