It's not sweet on its own - so it's meant to be savory naturally.
- Yes, I do think so.
- Nah, I love putting sugary things on everything!
I didn't mean is SHOULD be savory every time, but that it's natural state is savory.
It seems more and more people think that things that are bland are better off served as sweet than savory.

I think breaking things down in this black and white kind of way is dull. With oatmeal it's rather bland on its own without any seasoning, and you can potentially work it both ways.
A lot of interesting recipes cut savory with sweet, or vice versa. Example: cheesecake (savory main ingredient made sweet) or pumpkin soup (sweet ingredient often made more savory).

No, but not for the reason listed. There's such a thing as neutral. Oatmeal by itself completely with no additives is neutral. It's not salty and it's not spicy so it can't be savory. It's like water, water isn't sweet or savory it's neutral.
