For maximum security, they should probably both be disabled by default.

You should also consider a release taxonomy where these kinds of changes 
are not allowed unless there is a major (or minor) release number 
upgrade, and followed by a proper release note.

For most memcached environments, this is probably not an issue, but 
there may be some combinations of firewall policies and port number 
changes that accidentally cause a security issue.
