"Among NX 3.0's many options, I found it odd that the default setting is to disable SSH encryption for the session data itself -- encryption is still used during authentication, of course, but not for regular traffic."
I don't think that is correct. The documentation in the config file says that this option enables or disables the server from accepting unencrypted connections. The default is to allow unencrypted connections (as well as encrypted). Encryption is negotiated between client and server. The client defaults to requesting encryption, so straight out of the box with default settings, connecting clients will encrypt traffic. Now, you might argue that the default should be to not even allow client to connect unencrypted...
