This is completely different and orthogonal. No need to change IMHO.

It is next to impossible to switch on debugging everywhere if something
goes wrong when one needs all the support that's available and quickly.
Worse, one cannot be completely sure release build is free
of debugging artifacts (unless lot of effort is spent on it).
The benefit is increased confidence in the system, IMO.
