The nmh manual page is quite explicit about this:

       To get started using nmh, put the directory /usr/bin/mh on
       your  $PATH.  This is best done in one of the files: .pro­
       file, .login, or .cshrc in your  home  directory.   (Check
       the  manual entry for the shell you use, in case you don't
       know how to do this.)

As others have mentioned, this is the way MH has always operated.  I don't 
think there's any reason to change the behaviour.
