Maybe that is because they don't apply to the vast majority of
contributors. You don't need to accept the automated edit rules to
contribute to OSM as long as you don't do automated edits.

Doesn't this also apply for the Contributor Terms?
Remember OSM is largely a do-ocracy - those who put work into developing
the rules have a significant influence on their content. This does not
make them illegitimate. Both participating in creating and improving
the rules as well as working on the DWG making sure mappers comply with
the rules are open to everyone.
