is there a reason for x64 no-execute [1] being disabled by default in Arch?

I opened FS#46496 on this. https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/46496

I don't like the idea of secret agencies to analyse and archive
personal communication. GnuPG is available as open source, free as as in
freedom, as a countermeasure. I use http://www.enigmail.net/ for Mozilla
