I'll explain it differently.

As developers we have the (earned) privilege to come up with the
default behaviour of the installer. That's a compromise already, but
geared towards a development system. We realize the defaults are not
suitable for everyone. So we've added mechanisms to adapt the default
behaviour of the installer. 

But if you come here to bitch about default behaviour and you show you
didn't study the mechanisms to change it, what can we do?
