Is there a logical reason why xslt filters need to be selected
manually for installation? Flat xml file formats are a very good
feature, especially for document version control. Why is flat xml not
the default file format for LO?

No idea, because in the Mac version of LibO they are included by default, but then so is everything else, so that probably isn't much of an argument !!

From memory, in the FlatXML filters were originally designed to be able to export the former binary filter format files from StarOffice to be able to be read on PDAs of the time (Pocket Excel, Pocket Word, etc). They were thus an optional install on Windows. I guess that just kind of stuck as development of more widespread XML usage (and the development of ODF) progressed.
