I have a strong opinion on that, mainly because I put a lot of thought
and discussion effort into the active-view idea when I proposed it.

It basically boils down to:

  * (activate-on-focus yes) breaks in the focus-follows-mouse model,
    since the active view changes randomly when you just move your mouse
    across the Screen, containing multiple image views.

  * (activate-on-focus no)  works for both models,

While I agree that (activate-on-focus yes) works better for the
click-to-focus model, we should avoid shipping a default with a
broken behaviour on focus-follows-mouse models.
