Ultimately you have to consider that there's a reason it's optional - things like that don't generally happen by accident. I remember Rasmus commenting on this style issue a few years back so a search of the archives should find an "official" position.

In the generally recommended case of don't use them at the end of your file... where's the ambiguity?
