In case some people haven't noticed, a few days ago I released a new
e2fsprogs release for e2fsprogs 1.39.  New in this release is a way
for distributions and system administrators to control the default
filesystem features via the /etc/mke2fs.conf file.  

In the pre-release version, mke2fs is still using the same behaviour
as before, but my plan is to change mke2fs to create filesystems with
the dir_index and resize_inode features by default.  People who don't
like this default can always edit mke2fs.conf and change things back.
