Why INSTALL_PATH is not /boot by default?

This line, in the main Makefile, is commented:

export INSTALL_PATH=/boot

Why? It seems pointless, since almost everything has been for ages requiring
this settings, and distros' versions of installkernel have been taking an
empty INSTALL_PATH as meaning /boot for ages (for instance Mandrake). It's
maybe even mandated by the FHS (dunno).

Is there any reason I'm missing?
