I am all for active by default and giving a chance to disable things if
needed. We do want the "features" to be active and we do want users to
notice there is an issue they need to fix. They can disable things if
needed then but it's them who need to handle that and who need to know
why they need to disable a feature and what to do about it. Not
activating things by default makes no sense in my opinion.
--activate-features list,of,twenty,issues after a few releases. Nobody
wants that. We want --deactivate-features list,
