Please, lets not turn this into a re-iteration of the 150 odd comments on bug
6455.

Presumably because it involves a DB hit (in comparison to {{#if which does
not). Transclusions aren't parser functions, so can't really fall into the
expensive /parser functions/ category. Presumably people also tend to only use
transclusions when they want to actually include a page, they don't use it as
part of the hidden logic of a template.
