The Documentation for sysrq-c certainly needs to be updated.

If I am doing development on a system I like oops's. All of the
information and nothing goes down. I can get at /proc/kcore etc.

In a setting where I can't be Johnny on the spot and look at
things a core dump is probably the best I can get. In that scenario
panic_on_oops sounds good.

As I read the current check it reads:
If we are going to panic and not oops || panic_on_oops
kexec_should_crash = true;

Which seems a very reasonable implementation of policy.
