Because perhaps you don't want to do it, and keep asking would be
annoying. So it'd have to remember not to ask again, and then, if after
10 warnings you decide you want to do it, you'll have to do it anyway.
But if you're sure you don't want it, perhaps you'll want to deactivate
the warnings... and that's all state that is associated with buffers and
will have to be inherited for buffers visiting the same file, or perhaps
not (let's put there another option); and then the state will get stale
and newbies will get confused, and have to read the manual two or three
times to understand all the available options.

Typing 'M-x run-geiser' (or binding that to a function key) once before
you start hacking scheme keeps you in flow for the rest of your emacs
instance life much more simply... :)
