Why?  It's already "above and beyond" that httpd gives you a "success" 
page.  A server is designed to serve what *you* want -- and that includes 
gizmos that have nothing to do with "serving."

It's trivial for the owner|user to customize -- I would not want official 
distros to get bloated à la M$.
