Because he choose to not trust hosts keys which can be stolen especially when not password-protected. Because it is documented way to configure sshd. This scenario is very equivalent to normal Unix login procedure excepting that passwords are not transferred as cleartext over the net. It is most easy way for admin to teach end-users to use ssh without (mis)dealing with hosts keys. -- Andrey A.
