Oddly, it's only disabled in Play Slideshow mode, which is when you'd want it most because it's full-screen. I agree with you, there should at least be a choice in Preferences (I hope you're reported this under Keynote->Provide feedback).

On that budget, you can also get pretty far with the free version of OmniGraffle (limited to 20 graphics, but a box and its label only count as one of the 20).
