Because it is still the de-facto standard how you plug in external
components into your XMPP server. :)

And what do you mean with "purpose predates SRV records"?

XEP-0114 components can be used with SRV records. If you want the
component to be accessible by other XMPP servers, you just point the
components _xmpp-server SRV record to the s2s port of your XMPP server.
At least that is how I remember it to work.

I'm not sure what a new XMPP component protocol should do
different/better wrt. SRV records?
