They do ... If you install using the packages, and not by compiling and
installing yourself.

Even when using deb packages, you can have mailx and another MTA installed
at the same time.  This is a common practice as many packages do not
comply with Debian policy and use /usr/bin/mail instead of
/usr/sbin/sendmail as the Debian policy clearly states.  (This is one of
the things we are discussing on the list)
