There are 2 reasons why the instructions.txt file is a problem:
1. People that don't understand what this file is for. I've seen several cases where people see the prompt "Filename" at the top of the instructions box, and think they are supposed to type the name of their InDesign file in this field. The package command doesn't all the instructions file to be the same name as their ID file, thankfully, but then they'll name it something like "myfile2.indd" or something like that. Then, later on, they try to open the "indesign" file they created (which is really the instructions.txt file), and InDesign gives them the message that the file can't be opened or is damaged, and they freak out.
2. Many people use the Package command more often for just organizing files on their local storage than for actually submitting files to printers. In this case, their storage gets littered with hundreds of "instructions.txt" files, which droves obsessive compulsive people like myself crazy!
We have added this feature in our backlog for future release
