I too have noticed this.  My only thought was that on a 170 I installed,
that was preloaded, did not have the TC1 product installed.  I recall
seeing in the setup manual that IF you wanted that functionallity you had
to install it.  When I did nearly all of the TCPIP servers were defaulted
to on.  I guess that since you had to install TC1 you would then know the
risk.
I think it is a bad idea however to change settings when installing a new
release.  Heck, they(IBM) even keep changes to
some subsystems we might modify after an upgrade to V4R2.

I have complained to IBM about this behavious I observed after a V4R1 to
V4R2 upgrade.
Has anyone else observed this ?

After doing a release upgrade from V4R1 to V4R2 and looking through
WRKACTJOB I noticed several jobs running in QSYSWRK subsystem that
should not have been there.  It appears that the release upgrade ALTERED
the AUTOSTART settings for several TCP/IP servers from *NO to *YES.
The servers I noticed altered (I did have some already set to *YES so it
may actually change others) were FTP, LPD, SNMP, POP, HTTP, REXEC !
Changing these defaults during a releae upgrade is TOTALLY unacceptable
behaviour from a security standpoint  - especially for servers like FTP
and REXEC.
