I think it can be off by default. To use it securely you should log in
locally and look at or replace the host key anyway, so you might as well
enable it at the same time. (But I guess people use SSH for
better-than-nothing security, rather than checking host keys.)

That'll just delay the problem.

This I can agree with. :)
