It's interesting to note they have so far chosen to go (mostly) with
the defaults.

I'm sure most people do not have a problem,  or else,  someone would
have updated the defaults by now

Changing defaults will break stuff for people relying on those defaults.
This is usually not acceptable. At least not in the kernel.

The behaviour is well documented and easy to change.  Whining about the
defaults not matching personal preferences is useless noise.
