It's not trying to protect you.  VIM is a multi-platform program, so DOS
mode text files are perfectly valid.

It's not different than not showing the UNIX EOL characters.

In any case, you can do a one-line config change to get what you want,
so I don't see this as a problem.

Also, once again this isn't anything to do with Linux, and vim is not
GNU either.
