I agree - I'm not entirely sure why but it just feels more natural than asynchronous_commit = on. Plus the reasons you give seem valid.

On the flip-side, experienced DBAs are likely tuned into anything labeled as "asynchronous"...

I'm wondering if it would be wise to throw a warning at startup if either sync_commit or fsync were set to off, ideally so that it would both appear in the logs as well as in output from pg_ctl.
