Because that assumes everyone needs it all the time. The nice thing about
it being opt-in is that when it comes time to use it a person has to first
learn the entry point and from then on be explicit about it. I prefer
explicitness 99% of the time because it's easier to track down for new
contributors to a code base etc.
