I'd make it default.
I use less to view the content or archives or gzipped files more often
than viewing raw contents of files. And for that I have less -L (ignores
LESSOPEN). And I have aliassed that ;)  lessl does raw :)

By the way, setting LESSOPEN and LESSCLOSE env.vars. in Debian is as
easy as typing eval `lesspipe` on the shell.

My 2ct ;)
