I can only presume that there are many, many times more 1st timers/ non (professional) developers that use WordPress than us lot.
As I said, it's a beautiful piece of work, just not something I, or my clients, need.
The extra 30 seconds it takes to log in as the client and dismiss it is nothing (or chargeable to the client depending on how you look at it!) and I am merely making a statement rather than a complaint.
The other 99.9% of 3.3 I absolutely adore, of course!

Consultants who are doing setup for other people obviously don't need (or in most cases want) the welcome box, but they are capable of just turning it off. For that matter, users can also click dismiss the one time without a great deal of hardship.
