Personally I'd prefer a third option of just failing loudly and make
me have to fix the system manually to give me a chance of
understanding the root cause.

I was thinking of one question that defaults to yes and has to be gone
through doing the install. But just doing it by default on install (or
maybe even first boot) with no questions would also be fine.

But I realize this is mostly bikeshedding. I could use the current
default without much issue and it's easy enough to set something else
with puppet anyway.

Thanks for everyone's input.
