You are not alone. I had to set the same alias for Fedora CoreOS
because I kept typing vim out of habit and FCOS ships vim-minimal. It
was driving me nuts.
Maybe the vim-minimal package needs the alias instead?
This would break using Vim when vim-minimal and vim-enhanced are
installed (it would start Vi instead of typed Vim). To make it work,
vim-minimal would have to conflict with vim-enhanced, which doesn't make
sense - Vi and Vim binaries can exist together just fine.
In the end I find it incorrect to mislead users by default by telling
them 'Vim works' but Vi is run instead - Vi and Vim don't have the same
set of features, which may lead into bug reports caused by this mistake.
I have been adding the alias on my end because it felt like a
problem on my end, but I am sure there are more of us.
