Someone before saved me just the same :-)

Yes, If you run send-pr Or http://www.freebsd.org/support/bugreports.htm
that would get it in handbook for release users.
& also send-pr to ask for/ or better submit a patch to code not just doc,
for people running /pub/FreeBSD/branches/-current/ports/x11-servers/xorg-server
(with Makefile containing MAINTAINER= x11 at FreeBSD.org)

Xorg will have newer X sources than FreeBSD, & Xorg will be targeting many
OS's with different defaults of On/ Off for support daemons,
So that cobweb of what they might assume a consistent set of defaults,
is probably best pursued between people on x11 at FreeBSD.org & Xorg.
But yes, certainly FreeBSD should itself have a consistent set that install
& work Without hand editing.
