It's easy to search for prior discussion on this. Eg

​This is a frequently called function and it is not good design to make everyone who has encountered it and read the documentation forever more have to add that argument when so many of the use cases would not require it.  And again, visually, it looks bad and is much more complex than the prior (interactive-p).  Yes, there will be newbies who do not know there is an argument that they could provide because they just copied a snippet of code but that is far from a major issue and not much of a justification to create more work for the bulk of developers.

Does anyone concur or disagree?

I will have a look at the prior discussion.
