Hmm, well I like the current default.  I find it annoying when I'm
troubleshooting with 'emacs -Q' in older Emacs versions that eldoc isn't
enabled.  But I could live with having to turn it on in my init file.
Not really sure on what basis we could decide on the default (sometimes
people throw out the suggestion of polling the users, but I don't know
of any practical way of getting a representative sample).
