Same thing here, It was really surprising to see it as a proposed feature.
How can it be that after years we are disabling the firewall by default?
I personally find it a big, big step backwards.

Instead of disabiling it, wouldn't be a better approach to have a more
relaxed firewall policy for the workstation product that opens the
additional ports for DAAP, UPnp, etc.?
