There is "no problem", and there is "better practice" - and if your system is I/O bound it
makes sense to minimize on-disk fragmentation.
However, given the need for file-per-table to benefit from compression, I admit that it
might make sense to change the default now. Would you say compression should be enabled by
default, too? If you're aiming at diskbound systems, I'd think that it might make sense,

Changing the default is a surprise, no? :-) Also, everything is a surprise if you don't
read the fine manual.
