If I load a file and short tags are disabled and all of a sudden they
are allowed in the files I include. I see problems and confusions with
such behaviors.

What do you mean "all of a sudden"? There's only one way for that to happen - for you to explicitly make that happen. That's as sudden as saying "I run $foo = file_get_contents("/etc/passwd") and all of a sudden I get my password file in $foo! Confusing!".

Anyway, short tags are evil, what do we need to say to close this
pointless debate?

No, they are not evil. As for the debate, I don't see any point in debating it. This doesn't add any new features, only makes using old features easier.
