Why not have both approaches (maybe with their own seperate syntax?)

The author would then choose to use either method depending on how many opt-in's
and opt-out's he has in that block.

I found Mikko Rantalainen's !not-required idea very intuitive indeed.

p.s. Not related to this subject, but my pseudo-parent idea was ignored due to
my bad presentation and its resemblance to ::outside on the first glance (but
it is actually totally different.). I'll re-post the idea later with a better
presentation. But while you're at it, please check my earlier post!
