Clearly, the default for "latex" (and "pdflatex") cannot change in any
such way.  That would be obtrusively, horribly, incompatible with
millions of documents over the last decades.

All that I can imagine is providing a new and different L2E format which
is explicitly stated to be incompatible and without any idea of
stability.  I am skeptical that it would end up being more benefit than cost.
