Just being presented with a choice is a distraction.

Which is more distracting, driving down a straight road from point A to 
point B without any intersections, or driving straight through the 
center of a busy metropolitan center? Even if you know where you're 
going, you might turn for some very reasonable reason, or just get lost 
due to all the things that can go wrong on those busy multi-purposed 

Less obvious decision points is annoying to power users, but it is 
freeing to the average user.
