The intent is not to make the installation easier.
It's to make it compatible with the old (require 'tex-site) method.
But as mentioned, maybe rather than make (require 'tex-site) work, it
might be preferable to emit a warning explaining that it's better to
just do nothing and let package-initialize do its job.
