Lennart Poettering said:
« Remember: Zeroconf is about Zero Configuration. Requiring the user to
toggle some obscure configuration option before he can use Zeroconf
would make it a paradox. Zeroconf was designed to make things "just
work". If it isn't enabled by default it is impossible to reach that
goal. »
