Oh, I have other arguments against pragmas.  :)
But I think the best one is that optimization applied in the wrong
place is just poor software engineering.

As Michael A. Jackson said:
The First Rule of Program Optimization: Don't do it.
The Second Rule of Program Optimization (for experts only!): Don't do  
it yet.
