Here?  Because I use gentoo, which comes with only a very basic "stage 
tarball", enough to configure USE flags and rebuild/reinstall the 
original tarball packages and then build/install anything else I want. 
"Anything else I want" could be the kde-meta package, which would install 
nearly all of kde, or the individual packages I want, which pull in deps 
based on required deps and optional USE flag settings, making for a much 
leaner system.  Thus, there basically *IS* no default, here.  I specify 
what I want and build and install it, creating my own defaults in the 
process!  =:^)

On debian?  That'd be a distro policy.  You'd need to ask them, but I 
guess they figure enough folks won't need/use it that they prefer to let 
people decide for themselves.
