The only reason is that I didn't know it was possible to choose the by-<what>
during installation ;-)

During partitioning of disk you can set type of persistent device names. There
is button "FSTAB settings" or something like that and after click on it is open
pop-up windows where you can specify type of persistent device name for
partition what is actually creating in fstab and also for y2-bootloader.

Second reason is that I expected the defaults to work.

Why doesn't YaST use by-id in grub/menu.lst by default? It should probably use
by default at least in a case when the persistence of disk names is
"uncertain", which is pretty much every time there is more than a single disk
in the system. Or at the very least YaST should detect such a situation and
recommend the use of by-id names to the user.

The default settings is to use persistent device name (by-id) there was a bug
the uuid names were not know after proposal in y2-staroge and it was cause why
it doesn't work but Milestone 6 should includes fix and all types of persistent
device names should work again now.
