Right, it's not. I know this because I always install apache on my
machines because libsoup's regression tests use it (with their own
custom, which is another example of a scenario where
someone installing apache doesn't necessarily want it running by default.

Of course, distros that think run-by-default-when-installed is the right
behavior could just split the package into "apache-software-only" (or
something) and have "apache" just be a tiny package that pulled in the
software package and added the config files necessary to make it run by
default. And then gnome-user-share would depend on the
apache-software-only package on those distros.
