A number of these are wrong, because there isn't actually a single
correct answer at the moment.

This defaults to 'secure only' in the lib/param code, but disabled (due
to default initialisation) in the source3/param code.

In some ways this does not matter (it is only accessed via the lib/param
code), but I'm certain it will cause much confusion in our user base.

The challenge at this point I don't think it is practical to finish the
loadparm merge.  Ideally we would only have one set of defaults, but
efforts in this area dropped off as it stopped blocking other progress.

We certainly should do more to align the defaults however.
