Not in this case.
Here we can easily separate a default checkbox from code change.

Nothing is as easy as it looks. You have to patch software, patch documentation, patch translations and test them. All deviations from upstream carry risks. Then there would be differences between upstream and some distributions. Users who have to deal with multiple distributions have to deal with these differences.

If there is a change required, talk within the upstream community or have a real discussion with the package maintainers and try to convince them instead of pointless voting in the development mailing list (which is far from representative of a regular user base, would make them feel forced). If the maintainers have agreed to a vote, then fine. If not, it makes no difference and just wastes time. Don't do it. It just provides false hope and leads to more disappointment. Not worth it, for a easily changed setting.
