Although the function of the Sorting Hat should be taken into account: 
people aren't evil because they're in Slytherin, they're put into 
Slytherin because they're (potentially) like that. And this is, to an 
extent, a choice - most of the children *want* to be in the house 
they're in, and Harry makes a choice - and actively pleads - not to be 
in Slytherin.
