1 is already the default in /etc/sysctl.conf although it's set as
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter which should be the right way, as far as I
know. sysctl.conf is part of the "initscripts" package.

I don't have an opinon on this one, so for me, it's OK to use the kernel's
default value.

I actually find it useful that ping broadcasts are allowed, to be able to
quickly see which hosts are up.

No opinion.
