Because it's the most convenient way to represent a
parameter as a knob position (or as Y-axis for a curve).
For user, it's the mapping giving the maximum and most
regular resolution, where a parameter change actually
makes audible change.

Actually it's important to provide host with a conversion
function, because mapping based on the generic unit (ie log
scale for a parameter expressed in Hz) is not generally the
most convenient way to do it.

That's why IMHO it's important to have both, or at least
something to convert from one representation to another.

I do. Every Ohm Force parameter curves are finetuned
depending on the application of the control; it makes
huge usability improvment in some cases.
