In that case, I would answer your earlier question with "because it
creates an asymmetry between how built-in and external packages work."

Honestly, I do not quite see the point of your suggestion. It seems to
me that loading a package when you want it sufficiently easy to do.
And autoloading everything doesn't strike me as a good idea.
