Shouldn't the current best practice be default instead of a setting
Well, that's the current known best practice, but not the current best
deployment practice. We cannot have a default that is not compatible
with the majority of the existing deployments. If we do that, we will
not actually improve anything other than force the users to switch from
the default to the weaker level.
General question: What will be the lifespan of these
and if they're adopted in for example RHEL: how often will they be adapted?
You mean the mappings of the three defined levels? These will be adapted
per release if required. The defaults of the previous releases will also
be available as settings.
