Please don't add new boot parameters if at all possible. Distros will
not know to enable them, and users don't know how to either.

Use sane defaults, and provide ways to override them if needed, but
don't rely on them for new functionality if at all possible.

Why would this option ever _not_ be something that should be enabled?
