Delete User should not default to "Delete all posts and links"

When deleting a user in WordPress the radio button defaults to "Delete all posts and links." If a user does not read or understand what they are doing, the results can be a potential loss of all posts.
A better user experience would be to default to "Attribute all posts and links to:" then even if the data is attributed to the wrong user, at least no data is lost if the person does not read the options.
Although this is a minor change the result would save a lot of pain for the end user. An example of where this may happen is when a web developer sets up a website for a client, after handing over the website the client deletes the web developers user account without reading or understanding the options.
