I would agree that this should be a global option. Either that or you would need a nosmarticons option tacked onto every format that has icons. Egad.

Thanks for your attention on this. I eagerly look forward to the next beta.

My problem wasn’t with finding the option, it was with figuring out how to use it. Adding a comma then the option was not my first guess. I see that you’ve added an example in the -h output of the latest beta. This is a big help, albeit late for me 😉
