What a crappy idea.
Why should that be necessary?

No. You just need to add @system, and that only if you really did 
use unsafe features in your code. Which in fact is not that 
often, even in very low level code.

There will be a compiler-option to opt out (after the years where 
there is a compiler-option to opt-in). So no need to get upset 
And after those years I'm pretty sure you will have a new view on 
that - when you're the only one still needing @system on more 
than a hand full of functions

I personally don't like that, but it is there.
I just hope this will vanish over the time as I think it's crappy
