The grid is one click, and the choice remains as long as wanted. Other than complete newbies, who cares? I have turned it off and on many times for various reasons.

I would be careful about adding too much automation to making things coincident. For example, there are times when two similar arcs should not be on the same circle. There needs to user choice available.

I know it's a matter of a click, as we said, but my actual suggestion is changing those defaults. The reason is that those "newbies", who can also be experienced CAD users, are the new potential users of this software and the first impression can make the difference with their actual choice of giving it a try (and possibly even support it) or judging it as inadequate.
