It is true, but you shouldn't make any strong assumptions off of it
anyway, because every browser makes it fairly easy for users to change
their default.

Felix, I've asked you before to please stop bringing up your
disagreement with that old decision.  Every time something even
tangentially related to the topic comes up, you post another rant
about it.  It's tiresome to oldbies on the list, and confusing to
newbies, and it will never accomplish anything.  Your objection (and
that of others) was noted at the time of the decision, and it was
overruled.  Please stop.

(And if you wish to respond with another defense of your position,
rest assured that I will not read it.)
