wapbl(4) ("log" option for FFS in fstab(5)) is not enabled during sysinst(8)
in 7.0_RC1.

It was disabled after 6.x in the following revision:
>> Don't enable WAPBL by default. It's far too dangerous.

I don't know if there were any public discussion about the visible change.

IMO "too dangerous" is too ambiguous.
It's worthful enough for me, at least on 6.1.5.

Install 7.0_RC1 with all default choices.

Clarify intention of Core or Releng?
