It does not matter that much. The cpufreq modules are not loaded by
default. But that might change some day. On my old Opteron cpu I noticed
an increased response time when using the ondemand governor. On the
other hand I have seen cheap notebooks which will overheat easily if you
don't clock down the cpu most of the time. I think Thomas was concerned
about p4-clockmod. But this isn't a real clock scaling driver anyway; so
shouldn't be used with cpufreq.

In short: the user has to decide what is best for them.
