What if you're delivering something...get in...move the car around to the 
back or the place...then try to get out without turning off the car.  Door 
still locked?  I bet it is.
There's nothing like manual car controls IMHO.  If I want the doors locked, 
I'll lock em.  Same goes with stupid DRLs.  If I want to drive with my 
headlights on during the day, I'll turn em on.

Nothing like setting the alarm and having the car lock on you when you left 
your key sitting on the seat.  Oops.
