I agree. I want to know exactly where my nontrivial casts are. Unless I
enable -Wold-style-cast I cannot enforce the programming style which
forces one to pick the properly specialized cast. Replacing trivial
casts with static_cast may seem like a mundane task, but it is necessary for
identifying the points where static_cast is not sufficient.
