If copper is left behind because of manufacturing, it doesn't really impact the layout process or connectivity checking.

Sure does if it is DRC rule close -- it could be short in etching process results.

I suppose toggling enforce makes sense if that's the way it is.

I wish we were attaching netnames to pcb trace segments as we create them and using that
to do auto enforce without having to toggle of add f flags first.

Guess I need to try out that Auto enforce DRC feature -- I've never purposely
used it yet, but have seen
it somewhere...showing up by accident.  :-)
