If there were antifreeze in there, it wouldn't freeze.
Neat thing about cars and trucks is that they make their own water when they burn fuel. The byproducts of combustion are CO2 and water. If the engine doesn't got hot, some of the water vapor condenses into the oil.

If they made the shaft stronger something else would have to break - and the shaft is cheap and simple. Imagine if it stripped off the drive teeth on the camshaft instead.

It may also be a design consideration. You'd want the pump drive shaft to be strong enough to drive the pump under normal circumstances, but not destroy the distributor drive gears if the pump seizes.
