let me elaborate that a little further.
imagine you run a publicly accessible installation (aka server).
if, after installing a service like httdp, mailstuff or similar the
service would be started automatically, you had no chance to configure
it, test it for security, change its behaviour or nessecary files
in arch, the user is in control. and since installing does mean "write
all needed files to disc" it does not mean "start the service".
i hope you can understand the reason (and there are more for sure)
