+1 for highlighting it as deprecated and switching to an opt-in model in 6
months, there is AFAIK no rush to implement this but it may well break existing
code out there.

Would it help transition of scripts that rely on this behavior if we add the
opt-in option in the next release without changing the default? Then authors
can update their code to use the option and be ready for when it’s no longer on
by default?
