The out-of-the-box configuration of AUCTeX should be suitable as a
default for installations.  People not having any use for TeX files will
be less than enthused when accidentally opening one will cause a large
amount of files to be searched and possibly information being written to

It's not like the AUCTeX manual does not start off right with that
information.  So in general we expect people to find that before they
find the bug reporting instructions...
