Comment (by mbijon):

 That brings up an interesting workflow issue: Robots.txt is often manually
 created for complicated sites that want more control than the global (*)
 that WP provides, or when WP runs in a sub-folder.

 Is it a good idea to duplicate the Permalinks prompt like "Paste the
 following into .htaccess", or does WP aim to abstract sysAdmin tasks away
 from users (I guess making robots-prompting a plugin issue)?
