I disagree with your opinion Hubert.
I think its usual to boot to harddisk, if no keys are pressed.
If I choose to install I will press the apropriate key, or if there is a
menu, choose the proper menu point.
Because, let me assume I just installed the base system and do the first
boot, then I want to boot into the system, and not again into the installer.
(without removing the Media)
Booted from disk, a configuration menu could pop up (package installer), and
let me install packages, which are installed on the CD / DVD Media - which
is luckily still in the Computer. 
This was correctly pointed out from junyoung.

Cheers, Zafer.
