My initial reaction is that that's less important than just having the
option expressed in a positive sense (i.e. if it's on by default, that's
fine), but I think that probably comes from a GUI perspective where you
can have all the possible options presented and some enabled by default,
which isn't quite the same as a properties table in which options need to
be set explicitly.
