Well, it wasn't by choice.  It came with some K-apps that were
installed.  But that isn't the point.  It is pretty common.  The fact
that there might be an exploit involving fam and probably the 2.4 kernel
exploit isn't getting the attention.  The daemon itself doesn't appear
to have any security surrounding it.
