For matters of taste, *I* would prefer SSH  enabled by default, the  
overall public may perfer it. I really don't know. but if no  one KNEW, 
and it was implied
ssh was enabled by defualt. it would make more sense to enable it on 

But since it's not, I suppose disabling it *due to root not having a 
password *(for ease of use) is a pretty good idea..

I had to think about it a bit, but I tend to agree.

In lieu of ssh disabled, it's not impossible to spin off a personal 
livecd with root passworded (custom) and ssh enabled.
