Last I heard Ivy still had problems with some completion tables (IIRC
with those completion tables that return non-trivial values from
`completion-boundaries`, such as the completion table used for
filenames, tho there might be other issues such as the support for
unquote/requote).  If that's still the case (it was several years ago),
then enabling Ivy by default would either introduce regressions when
completing against such completion tables, or would force us to use
2 different UIs (the Ivy one where it works well, as some other UI for
those other cases) ;-(
