Because it is a valuable clue to the guy scratching his head trying to figure out why something isn't working after 'easy_install' runs: the source distribution is only around on his system transiently. The changelog, along with the README is an essential part of the package's documentation, and should be installed with the egg. Because distutils / setuptools doesn't allow for installing non-package data, we have to put them in the package.
