Because mono is huge, and they don't want to "waste" that much space for
unused packages.

For example, mono on openSUSE includes the 1.0 profile, which is split
into separate packages on Debian & Ubuntu, and is NOT installed by
default (as most apps don't need the 1.0 profile).  The same logic
applies to any number of packages that were considered as being less
useful or unnecessary, such as Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll support, etc.
