Yes, probably.  You'd kind of think that the human doing the auditing would
like a large and loud complaint if auditing had been accidentally disabled.

The only question is what behavior it should have if a site (for whatever
reason) decides to first load all the rules, then enable auditing (possibly
to avoid spurious complaints about processes because not all the rules have
been loaded yet).
