Main reason AFAIK is what happens to the text holding a table anchor when 
FrameMaker moves the table to the next page: some of the para holding the 
anchor is dragged there too, leaving excess white space at the foot of the 
preceding page.

There are many ways around this, but most of them become easier to manage if 
the table anchor lives in its own para.
