Actually, the default setting is to allow SecureFile LOBs, but not require 
them.  In order to create a SecureFile LOB using the default setting you must 
include the SecureFile options.  I don't see this as Oracle trying to hide 
anything, but rather allowing the DBA to choose whether or not to use 
SecureFile LOBs in their environment.  I wouldn't implement anything into a 
production environment, but in reading the benefits over BasicFile LOBs I don't 
see any reason to shy away from this new feature.
