I'd been wondering the same thing.  Beyond that, I've been hoping that,
at some point in the future, Debian won't cause network daemons to
autostart in the default runlevel just because they've been installed.
E.g., maybe the dpkg --configure step could prompt for that decision.

I'm sure this is a more-complex matter than it seems, but perhaps the 
possibility could be borne in mind for future consideration.
