Now, more interesting question is why auto modes in cameras enable flash when they should not? How hard would it be to read focus distance from the lens, and if it is, say, 100m, not fire this tiny little GN10 built-in flash?

I may be wrong but this case seems too rare for the manufacturers to bother. I'd say most photos are taken within a few meters range. So much so that for example, in my personal experience, lenses aren't optimized for sharpness at infinity.
