Because the installer has no way to know what isn't relevant. While we could 
hardcode the services that every package in the tree at the time of the snapshot 
offers and display them if that package is selected to be emerged, that's just 
kinda dumb. Also, this wouldn't cover the case of people using an up-to-date tree.
