No. As I said, large default keys have problems in the embedded space:
particularly, they do not work with smart cards, which are getting
increasingly important. The previous generation of cards were generally
RSA-1K devices. The current generation is moving towards RSA-2K.
I don't think changing the defaults to something that's incompatible
with smart cards is particularly wise.
