I would say the latter has low priority, since – as Min pointed out – even execfile does not share __future__s.  Even if some of use expect %run -i to do, it does not seem to be clear-cut, and adding appropriate statements to the %run file is not much work and makes the intention clear for all cases anyhow.  (In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.)
