I'm just not sure if a lot of users would use core.mode=next, because
of possible different behavior without any warning. Maybe we should also
add core.mode=next-warn that changes defaults like next but keeps warnings
enabled until the user accepts that change by setting appropriate
config option? That's safer than next (at least for interactive use) and
maybe more users would use that, but I don't think that's worth adding.

For me, old behavior by default and warnings with information how to
enable new incompatible features, is sufficient. So I don't need
core.mode option, but as long it will be useful for other users I have
nothing against it.
