the /bin/sh is SPECIFIC. It's standard bourne shell, which bash is not 100%
compatible with.

How would you feel if someone created shell similat to, but incompatible
with bash, and put /bin/bash as symlink to it, made it a default shell,
started making /bin/bash scripts that bash can't process (because of
incompatibilities) and finally started crying whenever someone complains?

It's sick. It's broken. If you want to be broken, just be. But don't force
us being broken and don't tell us that being broken is standard.
