LAN console default settings ( 65+21 simplification LI)
On new systems without an HMC it is very cumbersome to configure the LAN console through the 65+21 control panel functions.
If the default SLIC settings would go through supported PCI slots and configure the first one with a default IP, then we wouldn't need to go through the 65+21 shuffle on every SLIC media IPL. If an HMC was attached it would override this setting, so I don't see much downside to it. Hardware that supports 7.4 doesn't have embedded adapters or twinax (the other options in 65+21). This means that on a fresh install I could simply give my PC console a static IP, cable to the first port and be done. Later on I can configure the adapter through SST which is much easier.
