When setting up Hyper-V Host:

Allow this server to send and receive live migrations of virtual machines

Is there any point in checking this on the odd chance you might do a live migration 5 years from now?

Yes. You may want a second host for capacity. You need live migrations to facilitate capacity management.

Typically applies to failover clustering. Won't do any harm for a single host. But if you are not clustering hosts, why enable in the first place?

This just flips the toggle on install. From a purely "least privilege" standpoint, I'd not turn it on unless you plan on using it immediately. Smaller security footprint. If you want it down the road, there are steps (not overcomplicated) that can turn it on.
