Entity system members in 4.0

I noticed that when creating entities the system members are not automatically selected anymore. Is there a design reason for this? Because I fail to grasp the reason why this has changed. Regards, Ronald

People often don't give it much thought whether they really need these attributes or don't. When the default option was 'on', everyone left them 'on'. The sensible default would be to turn them off as they can cause a needless performance hit, especially in long inheritance structures with lots of data (for example the Audittrail module had this on, making it really slow.)

Yes, we do think about these things even if you might not grasp the reason :)
