After many discussions, it has been decided to export the metadata by default since it seems to be what many people would expect and they would consider they "lost" metadata (especially if they overwrite their original). I don't entirely agree since privacy (particularly if you are not aware of metadata and information they may contain) is also an issue but not many seem to agree with me. So here it is! All metadata now exported as a default!
