It was there initially. Then it was changed, because people didn't
want to get Tramp enabled mandatory for file name completion. Now the
registration is done only in case `partial-completion-mode' is
active, which must be checked. The comment in the code says

;; During autoload, it shall be checked whether
;; `partial-completion-mode' is active.  Therefore registering will be
;; delayed.
