This is a great question for the -users list (if you have any further
questions, please follow up there).

Notice the comment at the top of the optimize_mythdb.pl script that
suggests running the script in a daily cron job (ideally at a time when
recordings are least likely to occur)? :)

Yep (perhaps you did notice the comment).

That would be up to packagers.
Eventually, Myth will do all required database maintenance automatically
by itself. I have partially-written patches to allow this, but it
requires a lot of changes to make doing so safe (from a "without the
safety changes, automatically repairing the DB could destroy the entire
DB/all its data" perspective), therefore it will be a while, still.
