Not really.  A properly laid-out filesystem hierarchy will result in no

big improvement when you had to run a foreground fsck.

Soft updates are disable on / by default because of the chicken
and egg problem of runing tunefs on /.
If that's the problem, then why doesn't sysinstall enable it by default when partitioning for a new install?
