I assume you are saying make --with-mule the default for the

Yes. Backward compatibility and user choice is important to us
(unlike that other Emacs, which apparently is in the process of
partially obsoleting `lambda' -- I am not kidding).
As a matter of personal advice, I think you're probably being
short-sighted though -- all the actual issues with Mule have to do
with internationalized text. I've never had a problem with
all-ISO-8859 files. Yes you could run into performance issues in
extreme cases like large VM mailboxes.
Nevertheless, the choice is yours, and that's the way it should be.
