A few reasons:
1. It's always been that way and it ain't going to change. Extra points
if you know why those two numbers were chosen. :-)
2. The ability to open only c2s or s2s traffic enables server
administrators to do things like open up s2s to/from an internal server
via firewall rules.
3. Why does it really matter since we have SRV?
