There was a time that it was the default and several users made
convincing arguments. Such as they had files they did not want to
commit and it is impossible to completely remove something once it was
committed etc...

The preference is needed because Subclipse allows you to select
something like your top-level project folder and take the Commit
option. It then shows all the modified/unversioned resources in the
commit dialog. I agree there are situations where we ought to do
better. For example, adding an unversioned file to a change set in
the Synch view should Add it to version control. Also if you
specifically select a resource (your example) it would also make
sense.

Feel free to file an enhancement in our issue tracker.
