The option didn't work, and was not always applied consistently.
We had too many configuration errors by users who had misconfigured
or misunderstood the option.  It was simply historical baggage.

You can present your case, but it will take a lot of convincing.
Perhaps if you give some specific examples of what filter you use.

Of course, it's a small change so you can always just keep it as
a local change.
