Enable read-only Maplex functionality by default

    ArcView and ArcEditor users that don't have access to a Maplex license have been given the ability in ArcGIS 10 to view maplex labeled layers in ArcMap.  However, this read-only functionality is only enabled after a user with a Maplex license has opened an MXD, enabled Maplex and then saved it.  This is a completely unnecessary step that adds time to workflows and confuses users.  The read-only Maplex functionality should be enabled by default for all levels of ArcGIS desktop.
