In my part of the world cars typically slide over so they don't squash the guy getting out. Probably as a reaction to cars always loosing the car/ped collision public opinion poll and peds taking their time because they don't want to die. Why should this play out differently for bikes?
Maybe because the guy getting out won't die so they don't care so they aren't signalling like they might for a car?
FWIW, I'm also a commuting bike rider. I play by traffic rules because doing otherwise is jackassery.

So instead of having an idiot to dodge, you have a smoking crater and flying shrapnel to dodge. Wish fulfillment is a harsh mistress.

Carry a squirt gun.
Filled with brake fluid, been there.. done that (:
I've slashed tires for less than that. Usually asshole parkers.
