That's pretty much out of our hands. As I understand it, SuSE and Debian
include it in all distributions, and I believe a few smaller ones do as
well.

I would assume "significant customer demand" would probably convince other
distributions to consider such things. Remember CDs are a fixed size, so
even a small package like ht://Dig has to take the place of something
else.
