Really?? In every home I've owned that had a softener, the only thing that wasn't softened was the outside spigots.

I've never once seen it not supply softened water to the whole house except the outside faucets.
Why would you wants rust and spot on the dishes and fixtures?

New residential homes in my area now require a hard water line dedicated to the kitchen and hose bibs

I don't know why it would be code. But I personally don't like the taste of soft water.
