Because it seems not to totally clear to some a clarification;

The option to receive those email notifications is not active on Meta.
But it is on some wikis like the Wikimania2006 wiki.

Actually I think it would be useful if it is active on all wikis or at
least the smaller wikis. A possible result would be a (drastic) increase
of the outgoing emails from wikimedia to its users. That can be a reason
for not activating it globally.
