Among the existing DTS files there is pretty significant use of 
heartbeat although its not absolute.

There are 119 files that set a default-trigger, of these 91 (~75%) 
include a line to configure a heartbeat.

Personally I'd be very happy with heartbeat by default on STM32... I've 
seldom worked on a board without a default-enabled heartbeat so they 
make me feel comfortable. ;-)
