I thought of that too, but then I realized what problems that could cause.

You can cancel the installation process (also repair, uninstall, ...),
and then the installer rolls back what it already did. When we remove
the keys like the tool does, how can we roll back? Write the keys again?
But which keys should we write back?

I think it's easier to provide this tool for those having problems.
