Comment(by sboisvert):

 I'm not sure if this is a bug as much as that me (and the others in this
 thread) expect (and would want) different behavior on wp-activate. mainly
 to be able to use plugins for the hooks. Removing
 define( "WP_INSTALLING", true );
 would make this possible.
 Now there is a partial fix coming in 3.1
 (http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14718) that brings back the 2.9
 behavior of being able to use network plugins as well as mu-plugins.

 I don't know enough about the core to know what the implications of
 allowing all plugins to run on wp-activate.php but I would like to have
 that possibility.
