IMO, it should be a decision left to the user or admin, with the default being
verify. (Exactly as it is now.) Because there is a performance-to-reliability
tradeoff, and there is a very solid argument that the probability of collision
causing data loss is so small that you should instead be more concerned with
metoer strike and other improbable failures causing data loss. For some people
and some situations, that argument will be good enough - they would opt for the
performance increase. And for others, that argument is not good enough - they
would opt for verification.
