The admins will never change it until they have users clamoring for it.

My take is that as we go through the alpha and beta releases, we'll
hit the bigger sites and try to get them to tweak their setups. We
can then evaluate during the beta process what the default should be.

IMO, the point of the alpha/betas are to highlight and identify stuff
like this...so, I don't see a reason yet to change the default... --
