I second that, most of my users need this enabled to "get" the scale of 
the things displayed (so they can stop editing nodes when the scale is 
at 4cm...). QGIS isn't just a composing tool.

As I already said, this should even be a default : always useful for 
those who needs it, disabled once & for all for those who don't.
