GIMP allows you to configure the default values for all tool options. It
even allows you to save them as named settings so you can have several
settings per tool.

Because noone has implemented this yet. There's a long-standing bug
report for it. This holds true for almost everything that you are
ranting about. A little search on Bugzilla would have shown that we are
aware of all these issues and plan to improve them as time permits.
