No, because people have to set up their nicks as per 
http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#nicksetup before they will be able to 
recieve a cloak, and there's no easy way to check whether this has 
happened for a given nick, so we're relying on people to add themselves to 
the list if they want a cloak.  This is just for the initial batch of 
cloaks, if you're not on the list, you can always get one later.

As far as reasons to wear a cloak:

A) It shows that you have an interest in Drupal.
B) It gives people a way to find your profile on drupal.org easily.
C) You can hide your hostname, which has some security and privacy
