No it's not.

Suggesting this is just insulting. A lot of thought was laid to ground
for the decision.

No, it will not. Notepad, which is the default text editor on Windows,
barfs on LF line-endings, and many vi installations does the same
thing on Unix-systems bards on CRLF line-endings. And so does a huge
amount of custom, less tested tools.
Thinking that "this works for me, so it must work for everyone" is
exactly the reason why this whole situation is a big mess. You are
only making it worse by not realizing the issues.

I'm not even sure what you're trying to say with this e-mail other
than to blame us for your own problems. Stop making broken commits.
Clean up after you when you did by accident. And for the love of God,
stop blaming other people when you messed up.
