IOW, why is PASTE IN PLACE even necessary? Why isn't it the default?

I believe the offset is there to make sure that the duplicate does not cover the original.
When users Duplicate something, and nothing appears to happen, they may thinking that the function does not work.
With the offset, there is no room for confusion. You see the duplicate immediately.
(I'm with you though. 99.999% of the time, I need my duplicates in the exact spot as the original.)
