this is intended, as the documentation states:
" ...
Rather than enforcing certain features upon the user, we prefer to offer a 
number of choices where possible. The heart of MediaTomb configuration is the 
config.xml file, which is located in the ~/.mediatomb directory. If the 
configuration file is not found in the default location and no configuration 
was specified on the command line, MediaTomb will generate a default 
config.xml file in the ~/.mediatomb directory...."

mediatomb is a server, millions of possible configurations are possible, and 
even if I provide a "default" file (btw it would be the same, the server 
generates on first start) the user must tweak the config itself.
