Fedora is not for ordinary users. Fedora is for geeks and developers 
that like to experiment with a new software. Ordinary users use Windows 
and iOS (sometimes RHEL). Averedge Fedora user should be able to 
enable/disable firewall and justify if he needs such thing. So this 
decision about disabling fw be default is complitelly not important from 
security point of view. You can alway drop some iptables rules to your 
rc.local script.
