The other side of that coin is, what's the good reason to remove it?
There's a long way between "I don't want my setup to depend on PGDATA"
and "I don't think your setup should be allowed to depend on PGDATA".
If you don't want to use it, then don't use it.  Why do you need to
tell me how I'm allowed to run my installation?

Yes, I could reconfigure my scripts to not depend on this.  You have
not given me an adequate argument why I should have to.
