Please consider that enabling by default might mean that Ubuntu provides a toxic workaround which will decrease further the amount of time and/or money put towards free implementations of flash. Which are still required for people running PPC (Mac) or Arm ports of Ubuntu.

Unless Canonical is investing in free software flash in some meaningful way to try and dig us out of the mess. Or if there is some way to encourage users to continue to pay attention to a free software replacement, then I can't see how this change is consistent with the stated goals of the Ubuntu project.
