DHT functionality in Kubuntu default torrent client (Ktorrent)

is there a reason DHT functionality is disabled by default in Ktorrent? I have 
searched the Internet and didn't find any exploits or vulnerabilities for this 

DHT speeds up torrent transfers when connection with the tracker is iffy. It is 
also important because it allows bittorret to function without relying so much 
on centralized trackers.

Furthermore DHT is enabled by default in Deluge and in Vuze (former Azureus).
