no because it depends on the y-position where the x-axis is placed.
The most people, that make plots have the ability to *read* what is
written on the axis. The numbers that are usual placed there, are
not a pure decoration. And one learn in school (in Germany in the
4 class) that one has to read the numbers first.


Plot[1/x, {x, 0, 100}, AxesOrigin -> {0, 0}]

work fine.
