The aim is to minimize surprises: when the user explicitly installs a package in their configuration, it should override any package implicitly installed by NixOS.

I'm half-wondering whether this should go through the RFC process, but I'd guess it's not of a large enough change to deserve it. If you think it should, please say so :)

Not sure why you think so, this is a really simple change that I doubt anybody would find controversial. This looks good to me :)
