We have a strong backward compatibility policy, especially for distutils, so even though you can't imagine a use case I think we should keep the default the same.

You could try lobbying the folks at pypa and see if they disagree with me, since the opinion of the python core devs there would overrule me :)  Or perhaps one or more of the other nosy people here will chime in.
