InnoDB needs to be left up to the user. MySQL doesn't configure InnoDB 
by default, so chances are it will break for a bunch of people. As far 
as using InnoDB - it rocks on a table that gets updated a lot. On a 
couple of our sites that see an average of 2,000 comments a day, 
changing wp_comments and wp_posts to InnoDB was a life saver.
