Default immersive mode should be optional

Immersive mode should be optional because some people want to see notifications and most importantly the time when in apps without having to switch out of the app. The way it is now we have to wait for the developer to update their application to support immersive mode so that we can at least swipe down to see important information. Bottom line is it doesn't make sense to force the status bar to automatically hide in every application. Not only does this force the developers to update their apps, it makes it very inconvenient if you're not watching a movie or playing a game.

I think this isn't the right place to post that, maybe in Q&A section!!! Anyway, with those xmodules you can chose which apps you want to immerse. Here &/or here. Have fun.
