In my packages, I have usually not bothered with an ENABLED flag in
/etc/default for a number of years, but I have not removed any ENABLED
flags to keep backwards compatibility.

Does Debian no longer care about easy updates, or have we accepted
that updating to jessie will be a nightmare anyway and recommend
reinstallation instead?

Quite a number of packages also refrain from starting the daemon on an
unconfigured newly installed package until the user has configured it.
I guess that this needs to be replaced "by native mechanisms (i.e.
implemented as a patch to the upstream software)" as well? It is not
always possible to come with a working default configuration or to
build one in postinst.
