The carriers have many delivery options and I doubt eshops will bloat the checkout pages with various options.
There's much to be said for simplicity.
But if the merchant chooses to keep it simple by not telling me no signature will be required, and the item goes missing because there's no proof it was ever really delivered; at least not beyond the word of the FedEx driver, then shouldn't the merchant be expected to intervene on my behalf and make things right?
After all, it was the merchant's choice not to take reasonable efforts to ensure safe delivery.
