Unless I'm mistaken, there _was_ a rationale to that decision. If you 
don't restrict what namespaces can be stored via iq:private, end users 
could overwrite stuff like their roster with pure goobdley-gook (since 
iq:private packets are directly unwrapped and sent off as typically XDB 
calls).

At least, that's my guess. :)
