I think it's most likely just because guides and howto's are often
written from the perspective of someone using some sort of shared
hosting. Arguably it's also a logical place, since you can bundle all
your rules there and rewriting rules tend to change every now and
then. It also has some advantages if you ever want to move your site
to a different server. The more self-contained it is, the easier this
exercise becomes.
