Do you really believe that such a person will know if replaygain is
enabled then? Nobody's really described a situation in which a user is
negatively impacted. If it were enabled by default, this same "problem"
holds true. Being disabled by default, on the other hand, people with
tags may expect it in use without it happening. Basically, either way
one group gets left out, but people who don't use replaygain are
unlikely to have replaygain tags in the first place. And people who
don't know about its existence in the first place aren't even going to
be able to detect it's in use unless their files not only have
replaygain tags, but they're an improperly tagged gapless album.

I'm quite glad you can hear "tone" over the internet. Feel free to
assume any tone you'd like here. If you want the one it's actually
delivered in assume monotone without inflection. It's text. It's meant
to be read as such.
