This is one of Drupal's best features.  Why should we hide it and/or
make things more difficult for so-called "advanced users?"  I feel that
the ability to create PHP pages and PHP blocks should be part of the
out-of-box experience. (available without any "extra steps" on a fresh
install)  A first-time user looking for this ability might get
discouraged and give up before finding the "input formats" screen and
realizing that they must create a new item.

Also, this might be a problem resulting in support requests if people
get confused and combine other filters with the PHP parser filter.

Those users that are advanced enough that they need PHP pages, will be
able to create a custom input format.

+1 for the idea. Untested, though.
Chx, do yuo not need to default the node-settings?
