  No, there is no specific reason. This was initially done in 1997 for the
release of PSTricks 97 and the few new package wrappers built since this date
were done on the same model. This is a valid TeX syntax...

  Nevertheless, this is clearly too late to do otherwise. We must live with it
(and with a default color model which has incompatibilities with the standard
one for LaTeX users, which cause recurrent problems for new users which ignore
the `pstcol' package, etc.)
