There is a third approach.  You can add 	


to your kernel initialization file (Configuration | Kernel | init.m). 
This will not load any functions.  However, whenever you invoke a
function that appears in _any_ of the Statistics` packages, including
Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics` package, the appropriate package will
be autoloaded.
