Yes, so do I, which is why I wouldn't use anything other than
dial-on-demand. I don't see dialing as being any of the user's business.

A few months ago I'd have suggested that we made diald the standard way of
doing dialup networking on debian systems. Since PPP now has demand dialing
built in, perhaps that would be a better choice.
