There will always be users who have slower computers, hard disk or ram, that
auto saving wont good UX, but you also have users opening documents from
networked or online sources where auto saving would also be bad UX, and with
auto saving with versioning on by default will lead to larger files. The best
solution is to fix the current autosave feature that has been disabled in bug
65509 as it doesnt function correctly.
