For what do you need a clamd-instance? The 'clamd' daemon is only useful
for special services (e.g. amavisd, mimedefang) and there can not exist
a single clamd instance which fits for all these services. Users do not
need the daemon overall; 'clamscan' works without it also.

For full information, I suggest to read the corresponding tickets on
fedora.us's bugzilla. Most of the design decisions of the clamav package
are explained there.
