I'm not so worried about this point, as the mechanism is temporary, and
it will take time before answers on stackoverflow reach the mass. The
initial state is that the option is not discoverable without reading the
documentation, and Jeff's documentation is very clear that this is
temporary. People reading the doc are usually not the kind of people
giving dumb answers on the web.

And even if some people set the option without understanding the
consequences, it's not that terrible. They'll just get the transition
period shortened.
