Good security practice should be secure by default at the installation because you can not guarantee between the moment you create the database that nobody did login using those demo users.

Demo users should be deactivated in production environments.

I will update the documentation in the Wikibook

I raise it as security issue because we can even not change the password of those demo users. And so the only way is to inactivate them.
I really think such user should never be created by modules even in a health_demo module. The best is to create them with the demo script.

We then could create a module health_demo that holds the demo users and other info.

I don't think it is correct to create some default user via XML in the standard installation.
Especially, since 3.8 where the user can no more deleted.
