> Command execution sessions are assumed to be non-interactive

Of course, but login shell is not equivalent to interactive shell

> Shell profile scripts are allows to contain actions that write to stdout and these would interfere with ssh being used as a transport if sourced

It is the responsibility of the script writer that he/she should make
sure such actions are only performed in interactive shell (e.g. by
checking whether "$-" has i, or by putting them in the "rc" file

It does not really make sense to break the non-interactive command
execution environment just for that, because ssh is logging in either
