I have my doubts this is going to work. The wikis of this world will
start to include the ",insecure", pretty much like they include
",disable-ticketing" for -spice today. And people will cut+paste that.
Flipping defaults often breaks things, and this really doesn't look like
a good reason to take that risk.
