Companies got tired of dealing with customers calling in every month to complain about data charges on their data enabled devices, so it became more beneficial to require data on all devices than to deal with these call ins.
Yes, I would prefer that I could buy a phone and not add data if I didn't need it (though I LOVE it on my droid) it would create a headache for customer care. The only way I could see if is if there were no way customers could despite the methods used to ensure no PPU charges (which would severely cripple the phone)
