But look at positive side:

1. really few people run development kernels despite the "performance" so
it probably will be with nondebug kernels.
2. production kernels get more solid
3. because there could be a lot more debug points in development kernels
4. Distributors are interested in shipping debug-kernels.

You see the part that lots of asserts and debug prints may go.
I see the advantage, that a lot of them can come, at no cost.

Besides, if you want to have some assert anyway, then do not write it with
system-wide macro but make your own or mark it as "included allways".
Faulty logic.
