I believe that the agreement, based on the proposal that's been accepted
and the discussions around it, is that this is very much not a
`-XKitchenSink`-type extension. This is a set of reasonable defaults.
GHC2021 is the way GHC advertises it should be used (in 2021). Something
anybody can turn on without a second thought. I don't know if it ought to
appear in default cabal files, though it would definitely be reasonable
according the the extension's goal.
