With a slightly more "exciting" view, that I don't know Jesse's opinion on,
that the intent is that specific legacy behaviours will change, by in the
next major release warning, and the one after that not being the default.

Although thinking more about that, it means that "legacy" would be slightly
hairy, in that the default enabled subset would be different on different
(future) major releases. I don't know if that's too hard to explain and teach.
