Now you're being paranoid.

No one said something about disabling it by default, it's merely about
bringing it
to the user's attention that it will happen, and, since it's useful in some
cases (because
of internet traffic limitations), and prudent in others (because people are
wary of installers
doing any kind of connection attempt), also give the option to disable it.

Like I said, a formality, nothing to deep.

I think it became more than clear in the course
of this thread that the majority of people are *FOR* such a change.

Please note that according to the German law on data retention,
information on every electronic information exchange with me is
retained for a period of six months.
