Perhaps he was just not aware of these objections. Although I could not speak for him but it's at least a possible explanation for the proposal.

I don't see the point of making proposals like this which it's quite
clear have absolutely no chance of happening. Desktop team has already
stated clearly that they won't set up extensions as default
configuration. Continuing to 'suggest' that they do is only likely to
rile them up and start another of those long boring argumentative
threads that have no purpose...
