I think the main issue with regards to assertions is the lack of information. I would add some clear statement along these lines to the build instructions:

By default, PA is built with assertions turned on. This helps find bugs in PA itself and carries a small performance and code size penalty.
PA can nevertheless be built without assertions (with NDEBUG), they are not needed for normal operation (the standard error handling does not rely on assertions either).

This way, all the mistrust from perhaps old buggy times would be once and for all laid to rest, and that for everybody (including future newcomers):
