Enable Explorer Window Titles on Vista

Something struck me recently about the appearance of the Vista desktop. I did not consciously realize it at first. What's "wrong" with this picture:

Some Explorer Windows

If you do not see it, compare it with this one:

Some More Explorer Windows

See the difference? The second screenshot was taken with "AeroBar" loaded. The only thing it does is make use of the otherwise wasted space in the title bar by displaying the folder name. Does anyone know why Microsoft would not do this by default?
