It's not really easy to change. Changing those defaults will break a ton of test suites, git-related software and confuse developers around the world (and especially newcomers reading tutorials). This change is making development less inclusive due to the confusion it brings to people that are not already in the game. One more intricacy that does not need to exist.

All of that so a bunch of white dudes can feel better about themselves?
