Restore only with binaries in solution? Why?

When I enable "Package Restore" on a solution, I get "Some NuGet packages are missing from this solution. Click to restore.". That's ok. But why do I need to enable package restore manually? Why doesn't NuGet automatically detect that some packages are missing? I don't want any binaries in my VCS repository - neither dlls nor a NuGet.exe file.

Is there any way to enable this feature without the need to place binaries in my VCS repository?

We did receive a similar request in the past. We'll consider allowing restore packaging manually without turning on Package Restore mode.
