I see three possible solutions to this:

1.  Make Captcha part of the core, with Site.EditForm preconfigured to
    display a captcha whenever $EnablePostRequiresCaptcha is set.

2.  Leave Captcha as a recipe, but modify the distributed Site.EditForm
    to display a captcha whenever $EnablePostRequiresCaptcha is set.

3.  Provide a Site.EditForm with the Captcha recipe, and instructions
    to tell an admin how to configure it into the system (this actually 
    may be the status quo).
