I dont think it makes any sense to enable it by default, as its only used by discovery, for the rest it could be considered security concern?
also, a configuration file template is missing?

sat6.1 beta snap5
By default, its set to false.

Hey Orabin.. Could you please confirm if anything else QE needs to check ?
I would also do this:
1. start the smart-proxy (without changing the config file)
2. add the smart-proxy to foreman
3. check that 'facts' feature is not in the list of features
This should be enough but you can also add:
4. change the configuration to:
5. restart the proxy
6. refresh features of the proxy
7. check that facts is now one of the features
sat6.1 beta snap6 compose2 (Satellite-6.1.0-RHEL-6-20150311.1).
By default facts feature set to false.
# cat /etc/foreman-proxy/settings.d/facts.yml
Restarted the foreman-proxy service, and UI doesn't show the facts features on refreshing features.
later, I enabled the facts feature if it works and on enabling it I can see it on UI.
This bug is slated to be released with Satellite 6.1.
