I'm sorry, I think I wasn't very clear in my question. It isn't the
default in Arch Linux because it isn't the default upstream, but why it
isn't the default upstream?

My worry is that it's somehow related to dataloss, but I couldn't find any
search result about it, so I'll assume it's secure. In the worst case, I
have my (daily) backups :)

Thank you all.
