I'm a commercial CMS developer and encounter people confused by the current default not acting in the same way as literally all the rest of the software they're using. Nobody I've encountered is seeing this and just leaving it _wrong_ on their site, so low in-the-wild numbers make sense, but also mask the level of frustration and extra work that might result from the current default. 

If changing the default would only impact images that contain orientation data with a value other than `1` (0deg), which are therefore currently rendering incorrectly, I'd suggest that's a very sensible change to make.

As a side note, the spec for `from-image` focuses on the `angle` value. As half of the 8 EXIF values are for `flip`, I think it would be beneficial to mention that too, lest it gets overlooked.
