As has been repeated many times, installing the postfix port doesn't remove the sendmail stuff, the sendmail manpages that hide the postfix ones, etc. Of course someone diligent enough can remove all that stuff by hand, but as soon as a system becomes widely used, this sort of thing becomes "unprofessional". Do you imagine doing that on a pool of 100 machines?

Sure no problem. It is in the same problem category as a windows administrator administrating a pool of 100 clients and the necessary servers. If that administrator has not figured out how to automate that process, (s)he should be very ashamed.
But with a unix-like system it is so much easier to automate things in comparison to windows-like systems.
