If you want to disagree, I think you can find better ways to do that but
my point is simply that any daemon by default where it is not necessary
for majority of users = resource waste.  Incidentally, there *are*
distributions including cron but not a mta by default.

Anyway a feature proposal has been made at

We will get off inertia and do something about it now.
