For these two reason (power and security), I think Debian should offer

Sorry, but this is certainly not going to happen.

Why not?  Is it so bad to give user a choice?

The blacklist for faulty drives on the other hand, installed by default, might
indeed be a good idea though.

but a blacklist is only a helper, it would not have the complete list of
broken hardware, and updates on stable are slow.
So users need to override (easily) the decision (e.g. with the debconf question).
