Exclude Reparse/Junction Points by default

Why not exclude user profile reparse points by default?
%userprofile%\Application Data
%userprofile%\Local Settings
etc...

These need to be manually excluded every time a file replication job is created containing user profiles.
We can disable the warning about skipped reparse points but too many skipped reparse points cause a backup failure.
For someone like myself who has to administer many sites, entering in exclusions for user profile reparse points one at a time at every site is very time consuming.

Maybe a file replication option to disable backing up of reparse points for legacy profile folders would be appropriate?
