Well, consider this.

I know what a .bat file is; I know how to use one. I don't know what a "cmd"
or a "js" startup script is. If I need to modify the .bat file, I can read
it, understand it, and use it without looking something up online. A lot of
Windows users who would be interested in FOP are in pretty much the same
boat.

So what would be gained from using a relatively obscure script format rather
than a .bat file?
