Because it's not useful at all to have boilerplate there, because we
have plenty of documentation already (the accessibility wiki page, the
pkg-xorg documentation[1], the various X manpages), because it's a
pain to maintain upgrade paths for configuration files, etc.

 1. http://pkg-xorg.alioth.debian.org/

There's also -configure to generate a big fat xorg.conf with many
stuff, but most of them are useless, so creating a file from scratch
with a few targeted instructions is probably the best way for

(If you're wondering, I maintain X within Debian.)
