I think the rule was put in without a lot of thought.

The rationale, that no matter how well-intentioned
employees are imbued with their employers' viewpoint, 
is normally a reason for avoiding "packing the slate".

However, two factors mitigate:

1) Someone switching jobs to a new company is LEAST likely
to steep in their employer's mindset in their first six months
or year. So the conflict argument makes least sense.

2) The real needs for diversity would be better met if
there were more diversity of industry or product-type.
