(Assuming you mean that you changed the default in the org sources, not
in your config files.)

Please don't, at least without discussion of the consequences of adding
a dependency that is beyond POSIX..  sh is specified by posix, and bash
is a) sometimes not present and b) behaves differently than as specified
by POSIX, leading people to write nonportable code.

If someone wants to run bash explicitly, it makes sense to have a bash
language block that they can use.  But the sh language block should be
sh.   The real point is that bash is a different language.
