Because the user is aware of what he wants to use and does not need the
other part of the world.

i.e I prefer Gnome, and I don't need any KDE-Software. On Installation I
have the choice to bloat my hard disk with tons of software I'll never
use or select the packages manually within aptitude.
Both choices need much more time than just having tree subtasks of "Desktop":

[ ] Desktop

  > [ ] Gnome
