I've always thought the same. There are some licensed airfields with very few movements and some very busy unlicensed ones. If the purpose of ATZ is safety then they should be based on the number of movements not whether it is licensed or not.
Until the ATZ rules changed in the '80s when the 2nm radius or 2.5nm radius ATZs were introduced, all airfields were deemed to have had an ATZ up to 1.5nm from the airfield boundary whether licensed or not, so for instance, Lasham, one of the busiest, had an ATZ at one time.
