Would like to share my experience:
IF there is no much need for INTERIOR_POINTERS, one should NOT define it.

In my project that caused lot's of accidental pointer retentions, GC took for pointer a GUID which are heavily used by the system. Regretfully, I had no easy way to instruct GC not to treat it like that [I know, there are ways to do that].

General idea: if you KNOW that in your project there are NO INTERIOR POINTERS, there's no need to switch that ON.
