Because not everyone wants a cheap surge suppressor. If one came pre-installed, my first official act would be to rip it out and put a Franks Auto-Transformer in. Others would want the Progressive unit.
MOST would just leave the cheap, almost no protection at all, stock unit in; thinking they were protected. Which actually may be worse than KNOWING you are walking barefoot in a world of broken glass.
