Because that is a packet every 120 seconds that isn't required for me and
for most people with sane NAT timeouts or accessing local servers. It
could also increase internet costs for those under "Per-Meg" payment
Same is true with ClientAliveInterval. They exist to resolve a problem
that someone may have, but I'd hate to see the extra traffic by default on
my work LAN/WAN where it isn't required.
