Comment (by Ipstenu):

 It's not 'mandatory' though, it is 'active' on all sites.

 Further details would be something for the help screen, but issue we're
 facing today is a glut of people confusing 'network activate' on plugins
 with what it means on themes.

 I will note that 15 months ago, this ticket was aimed because we were
 'network activating' from the primary site on Multisite. This is no longer
 the case, and while I think using 'Network Activate' for BOTH plugins and
 themes is inconsistent (they don't mean the same thing), perhaps this
 should be chucked, and we should have 'Network Enable' for themes and
 'Network Activate' for plugins.

 Then use the help screen to go further.
