and its defaults should reflect as much. Certain text editors
(*cough*sublime*cough*) default to not adding an EOL at the end of
files. If honoring the EOL were the default behavior, then I would have
to manually verify (or be prompted every time) whether or not every text
file I edit has a proper EOL at the end of the file. I edit
files-from-users-whose-editors-don't-add-EOL far more often that I edit
binary files with Vim, and I imagine that's the situation for most Vim
