The default NetBSD telnetd configuration is more secure since passwords are
not sent in plaintext over the network. This is why valid is the default.
If you want to send your passwords in plaintext, feel free to change it for
your system, but I don't think that the change is appropriate for everyone.

Seriously, it sounds pretty broken to rather not have a working telnet than
to do just what telnet is intended for.
Plus: I read the part about login(1) that it should fall back and ask me
for my login & password. Apparently it does not - a feature?
