While I think that a 'most' category is a good idea, I'm not so sure
that we could get agreement on what should be in it!

And now that we have negative imports on the warnings pragma is it
needed so much?

Your preferred 'most' can be expressed as ...

    use warnings qw(all -once);

My preferred 'most' can be expressed as ...

    use warnings qw(all -redefine -experimental::signatures);
