I don't believe it's on by default, and normally people would not want
to turn this on unless they only plan to ever host one domain on their
web server.  All my web servers host multiple domains, if for no other
reason than you want to have a "testing" domain to try out new versions
of a web site first before you make them live at the "real" domain.

So I am curious.  I have not run into other programs that have a cookie
problem without turning on canonicalnames.  Is there some issue with
PHP I'm not aware of that leads you to this recommendation?
