Visio 2010 has a feature that automatically expands the page size based upon shape content.  This would be particularly handy for long Gantt charts, or, as Gantt charts expand because of schedule delays or added tasks.

What should the default setting be?

I think that it makes sense for flowcharting - this is how ABC/Micrografx flowcharter works/worked. I think people have requested it for a long time.

Personally, it drives me nuts, but I do understand the reasons for it. I think maybe it should be on by default in more limited circumstances, though.
