Unless they fast-forward merged a feature branch into master, but the
project prefers explicitly-merged feature branches with a cover-letter
explaination in the merge commit [1].  On the one hand, folks
integrating feature branches are likely more experienced Git users.
On the other hand, I know several project maintainers who integrate
feature branches that are pull-happy.

I agree that accidental ff-merges are likely to be less troublesome
than accidental non-ff merge/rebases, but I don't think changing the
default to ff-only is a perfect fix.
