Because we'd like it to edit the correct datadir into the config file,
to take just the most obvious example.  There has also been a great deal
of discussion recently about other things initdb might automatically put
into the config file after looking at the system environment.  That's
not happened yet, but we'd really be restricting ourselves to say that
initdb can never customize the config files.
