It was definitely done to make the game more streamlined and fun, to take away having to press a button before firing to use your recoil reduction mod. You're not wrong. Where you are wrong, in my opinion, is in saying this is a bad thing. There are real differences between streamlining and dumbing down and this falls into streamlining for me... I hated having to juggle F-keys in the original to use stuff like bullet resistance and rocket defense.
You don't 'have' to do anything. It's an option, what Deus Ex is all about IMO, choice and consequence. Sometimes you use it, sometimes you don't. Not every fight requires it and/or is worth spending energy on, and if you're surprised you can get properly punished for it. It is possible to rebind keys after all as well.

That said it should cost energy so that there is a penalty for using augs. I was under the impression that even though certain augs would be automatic they would still have an energy cost?
They don't. How would that even work anyway? Automatically drain energy when firing/being fired upon? Sounds even worse.
