Since when is this decided by votes?

I tried to do what you are doing (disable header and footer by default 
in Calc) some time ago, but I came to the conclusion that there needs to 
be some serious UX improvements before we can do that.
Joe Average will not know how to enable them (that he has to go to 
Format->Page to enable them).

If you want to disable headers and footers by default, you need to

1) Always enable the Insert->Header/Footer menu entry
2) Add an option to enable Header/Footer to the Header/Footer dialog

or something similiar.
