I can't think of any reason for it (although I do it myself as a
legacy from my old XHTML fanboy days - I haven't gotten around to
implementing a filter in my CMS to convert it back to HTML 4.01 yet),
but at least it is a "MAY be served as text/html" rather than "SHOULD
NOT be served as text/html".
