How big a problem is this?

If we need to support this behaviour than I would suppose a config
option is required. A default config transition path similar to git
push defaults would probably work well, in the case where breaking
these expectations is unacceptable.

Many people use git add -p by default, so I would not be surprised
about people not using -u or -a.
