Because the file will be multiplied: Every reader of the list
will get a copy of the file, even when he does not want to
open the file. This eats space in all mailboxes and bandwidth
for the mail servers. Putting files on the WWW and then only
give the URL but not the actual file in the email is better,
and it will also make list archives happy. While you can read
old mailing list emails on many archive homepages, you cannot
typically open files which were sent to the mailing list. I
would guess this is to avoid eating space and bandwidth ;-).
