Isn't it possible at all to reverse this to have plain=true as default
and set plain=false (or spicy=true or so) explicitly?

Since this is so controversial, I would vote against offending so many
potential users. Thus, if plain=true shall not be the default, then a
critical priority debconf question would be my next best preference.

Have a nice day!
