Can you stop thinking about this please?
I can't fathom how it's not the default. To me UI/UX should be that the default option does the least damage to the file/folder/library/site access.
If the site is configured correctly then the people with existing access link provides a link for teams to access, what the default copy link does is create a link that can then roam around letting people into the file. It's nice to think people will know the difference or know what creating a link does, but they should actually be guided and warned of what they're doing during the creation process.
Seems poor security practice if you ask me.

Thanks for your suggestions. We agree this can be a little restrictive and we’re going to look into it.
