You are missing the point. Many arch users don't simply install a desktop environment and use its defaults. 
If that's what you want, you may want to use another distribution, preferably one that focuses on your DE. 

I use a very minimal setup without DE, and I don't want bloated catch-all solution that doesn't integrate nicely into my configuration, thank you very much.
