Um, we're not talking about static files, so the above is a red herring.

robots.txt has the SSI handler declared for it?  If it's a static file,
sure -- make the default for path-info be off.  But if the handler for
a resource is anything *except* the last-chance filesystem handler,
leave it enabled by default.  DON'T assume we know better than whomever
wrote the handler, and DON'T add confusion about when the option is
on by default, off by default, and when it needs to be set explicitly.
