SU+J on 9.1-RC2 ISO

Why are journaled soft updates the default when installing a new system 
from a 9.1-RC2 ISO?

I admit I did not pay too much attention when installing a new system 
from an 9.1-RC2 ISO and found out when taking a snapshot with dump (dump 
-0Lauf) to clone the system. Other systems (9-STABLE, 9.1-RC2 and 
9.1-RC3) have been upgraded from 8.X-RELEASE and earlier, so there are 
no journaled soft updates enabled, just soft updates, and well there 
dump with snapshot works just fine.

Can SU+J be disabled for the 9.1-RELEASE or do you think this is not 
going to be a problem for users of FreeBSD? I will have to boot these 
two systems single user now to disable the soft updates journal, because 
I use dump + restore on live systems, not a problem for me, it is just 
an inconvenience.
