I might be the only one using it (exclusively) :( but I am open to

The idea behind eldoc-post-insert-mode is not to show the eldoc messages
all the time which can be kinda distracting. Some editing environments
(maybe Matlab) also only show the arglist after inserting (.

In general I find the arglist (eldoc) most useful when editing text.
When browsing code it is most of the time easy to guess from context.

Also getting the arglist can be expensive. For example in octave it has
to ask the running process (which can get stuck when the process is in
the middle of doing something else). In other cases it has to make
remote calls.
