On purpose. Why should I create VM with 5+GB root partition when 3GB is more then enough? Of course enough but the
initial upgrade.
If you have to pay for provisioned storage then it matters. And I would use that storage only first hour of that VM and
then it will never be utilized.

Amazon price is:
  $0.05 - $0.08 per GB-month of provisioned storage (cheapest magnetic storage, the SSD costs even more)
It seems to be small. But times it by few GB, by dozen machines and it will grow quite fast.
