For that matter, why should `yum clean packages` only clean packages
in enabled repos? The entire conversation could apply equally to all
the clean sub-commands. Just saying that 'all' is the combination of
all the other clean commands doesn't actually change the discussion in
any meaninful way.

Yum is doing just as much guess work by assuming the user doesn't want
disabled/removed repos to be cleaned. It has already been concluded in
the leading discussion that 'all' is simply an ambiguous word in this
case and that the documentation might benefit from improvements
reflecting this.
