In my opinion, I seriously doubt it is some Microsoft conspiracy and I suspect that if one searches deep enough, say on MS's site, you can find how to change the default page setting. Until then, just change it to index.whatever. Of course, the flip side is with EW, MS is more or less pushing asp.net. But even then, you are not required to use it.
