What are you exactly suggesting? That we keep the inconsistant semantics
of "git add -u" or "git add -A"? Or another migration plan?

That's indeed the kind of mistake I'd like to avoid. In your example,
"git diff" is tree-wide, and "git add -u" is limited to ., so in general
"git add -u" won't stage the same thing as "git diff" just showed.
