This already works - and you can statically enforce it on a 
per-function level by @nogc. Or on a per-type basis with a 
trivial wrapper struct (except null doesn't implicitly construct 
- we should fix THAT). Or on a per-project basis with -betterC.

All this proposal does is break code that hasn't opted into those 
existing options.

I agree with this regardless though.
