Consistency.  All little tweaks to Emacs functionality which "everybody
is bound to want" end up irritating people immensely, so they are all
disabled by default - at least when new, including several I have
written myself.  Even Font Lock was disabled by default up until (I
believe) Emacs 22.

People who want this new mode will find it and enable it.  I can't
remember any arguments you may have made as to why this mode should be
singled out for special treatment, but I can't see any compelling reason
for its default enablement.

Anyway, it's for Eli to decide, not me.
