Yes. This isn't just a numeric parameter; it's also a boolean
indicating "do I want to pay the overhead to be prepared to be a
replication master?". Josh has completely failed to make a case that
that should be the default. In fact, the system would fail to start
at all if we just changed the default for max_wal_senders and not the
default for wal_level.
