It doesn't if you by installation mean the placing of binaries
etc in $PATH directories and such stuff ...

But I like it that way, I don't like when Emacs adds stuff to
my init files and I see no advantage of that, on the contrary
I'd keep that human/computer separation clean.

Also I have no idea why this "has to" be the way it is but
with this at least I don't have to see it

  (setq custom-file "~/ooa/dork.elc")

I don't even use custom so why can't that be opted out
completely? Or can it? Apologies if so ...

Well, to me the init files were just files, the only thing
setting .emacs apart is that Emacs by default looks for it,
i.e., looks for a file located in $HOME with that name.
But I don't know, maybe there is indeed a policy which is
wholly or in part enforced somehow with respect to specific
files ...
