I can live with either showing / not showing by default.
Just note that without showing, many people are receiving wrong 
transformation results without any hint. In my opinion, a normal GIS 
user should never have to do otf-reprojection, it is far to error prone 
(better, let the surveying departement do the conversion between 
different systems).
