It would be nice to have in Lightroom ability to choose what will be default setting for people keywords. For example I would like to have "Include on export" option unchecked as default for privacy reasons.

Thanks.

You don't need to do it on individual keywords. In the Export dialog, in the Metadata section, there's a checkbox to "Remove Person Info".

I know, but this is not solution. Why there is option for this in every keyword? And why it is ON by default if I have to "overwrite" it during export by new option? I doesn't make sense for me.

The option is there for all keywords because there are some other kinds of keywords you may choose to exclude. For example, you may have heading keywords (who, what, where, etc.) that you may want to exclude.
