Description James Montemagno [MSFT] 2016-12-13 17:48:24 UTC
This should be on at minimum for New XAML page and all new XAML projects.

Other option is to turn it on at the assembly level.

## Non-engineering team preliminary quick review

- This report does not currently list any reasons in favor of or against making this change.

- On a side note as a quick reference in case it's handy, the recommended format to follow for the bug summary field is to "explain the problem, not your suggested solution" [1]. This bug currently only describes the suggested solution.

This is a feature request actually and we have new item templates and such.
