To anyone with more than one box, sshd is a must - to anyone with

Most likely because your average desktop user doesn't need it. And
people who need it can easily enable it. Minimize surface attack area
and all that.

My opinion - not a very good reasoning.

On a related note, is postfix still enabled by default in 11.2?

Yes, it is.
