Sometimes (actually, webmode is a nice example) you as a user
want to decide on a case-by-case basis which is the one you
want to activate on a HTML file. Perhaps via a file variable?
Perhaps manually? The installer just doesn't know.

Perhaps you don't want Emacs to decide at all based on the
file name, but on contents (I, for one, have this tendency).
Then you'd be miffed that Emacs, all of a sudden, uses some
mode on files named *.html.

Mode decisions are far too "interesting" for a simple installer
to take decisions for you :)
