 According to whom? It seems awfully intrusive to me. I can't think of
 anyplace in WordPress where the filesystem is modified without explicit
 action by the user. This goes especially for a case where a WP install is
 phoning an external service (albeit a relatively benign one like
 wordpress.org) and automatically propagating changes based on that
 service. Even services like iOS, etc ask for you to confirm updates.

 In addition, automatic updates would wreak a certain sort of havoc with
 people who keep their codebases under version control and use deployment
