Most likely to avoid breaking existing functionality.
As this mapping is a relatively new feature, we wouldn't want to force it upon new users.
The need for Phoenix to have the proper core-site, hdfs-site, and hbase-site XML files on the classpath is a fair knock though (although, the lack of ability to provide classpath element continues to boggle my mind as "normal"). I think discussion around how to better handle this would be a much better use of your and the community's time :)

is there any specific reason default value of

when using multiple clients like Zeppelin, DbVisualizer etc.. we need to
maintain hbase-site.xml. Particularly latest version of Zeppelin is not
recognizing hbase-site.xml, it worked only when I included into phoenix
client jar (jar uf phoenix-<version>-client.jar hbase-site.xml).
