I think that's reasonable - it's been a while since I've generated a new config.

I kinda like nothing being enabled except in config - package sane
configs to be /etc/zsh/* (or /usr/local/etc/zsh/ on BSD I suppose) and
the new-user script sounds like the right way. This is only the second
time something has seemed weird (or from what I wouldn't expect) in
zsh (the other being how arrays are expanded - as arrays are broken or
near enough to broken in bash, I have no complaints about any
improvements zsh makes with them).
As for this (and other 'features') I suppose I'd expect package
maintainers in Linux to make it as close to what you'd get in bash as
possible and the core package to come with configs to get as close to
what sh does by default.
