Because it needs to run a window manager when it's invoked with no X server
running.  And metacity is the default window manager.

There's really no good way around this atm.  If there were a 'prefwm' or
something then I'd use that.  I've got gnome-wm, but that pulls in
gnome-session, which is slightly more heavyweight than metacity in terms of
requirements.  And no, not going to depend on twm instead.
