We can't change a loose default to a restrictive default, or pages are likely to break. But if we change a restrictive default to a loose default, it will probably introduce security issues. That's why I am treating this as a "for all time" decision and not a "for today" decision.

Which is also why I think the decision should be based on what we know 
to be the case today rather than guesses or fantasies about what the 
case might be in the future. Or would you just like to flip a coin?
