While I understand your concern and point, we cannot just include those couple of lines in order to send an e-mail. Here is why - there will be definitely people that will want to customize the mail template, configure the mail sending system (they will definitely want other SMTP or at least other FROM e-mail, different than the one in the mail campaigns), then option to enable notifications by Blog, and the list goes on. The devil is in the details :).
Of course we can go with something simple as a first iteration and build on top of it - this is what we usually do. Unfortunately we cannot do it right now, having in mind that this is still possible (via the hooks..). We'll for sure go over the notifications once the 4.4 is out.
Thanks for your understanding in advance.
All the best,
the Telerik team
