They are already are, please review the (simple) package. For some of the 
packages that provide them (like systat) the tasks are pulled in from the 
depends:, for other packages there might be users that might not want an 
active cron job. Take 'sac' for example, a user that installs sac, 
installs a tool to do something, he doesn't necessarily want a cronjob to 
send sac's output to him weekly, for example.
