We must look at two cases:
  1. Writing new code. Given the number of bad actors out there who will attempt to exploit any possible breach, not using the "safe" APIs is tantamount to professional malpractice.
  2. Upgrading or modifying old code. This should be treated like renovations in an old building are. Replacing a light fitting does not require that the whole building be brought up to code, but a major renovation does. Reasonable people may disagree on the meaning of "major".
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
