Very true. It's total speculation but I'd hazard it got in to C# in the first place due to being coded as a exceptional case in the C++ compiler being ported, sneaked through and got shipped and like much else that Microsoft has accidentally released not quite perfected, they were immediately stuck with it.
 
I love their obsession with backward compatability after all how else would we have ended up with a Win32 API with 17 different functions for answering the question "How long is this piece of string going to be when I paint it on the screen?", with anything between 1 and 3 of them actually giving the correct answer depending on the version, the screen and the current alignment of Mars with the Moon.
