If you want to protect some parts of your site with client 
authentication, then you need to enable insecure renegotiation to 
support (not so) old browsers - even latest version of Safari on Mac.

But I agree it should stay disabled by default (most secure).
And client-side renegotiation isn't probably needed as several app 
servers do not honour it any way.
