IMHO, it should definitely be a plugin (as should everything we ship),
but I think it should be a plugin that is installed by default.  As
pointed out in another email, monitoring is typically shipped and active
in some form for most other application servers.  If most of the users
find it helpful to have automatically enabled, then its probably good
that we do so.  I would probably suggest as we get closer to a release
date that we get more input from users on this subject so we can make a
proper and informed decision.
