Because a concept isn't automatically bad just because they had it first.

I said I'd like this option because I have used it and I think it's an
improvement compared not having it. I have never said Haiku should have some
feature just because another OS has it.

But if you want a reason in print: I have a few apps that I start
immediately almost every time turn on my computer, and I think it's a
convenient way of starting them. I think you could combine running apps with
shortcuts because they aren't that different from a user's point of view. I
know there's a huge difference for the computer, but I think the OS is
supposed to make the user's life easier and not just the computer's.

If you still think it sounds horrible maybe you could try using an OS with
this possibility (OSX, Win7 or Linux) and see if you like it. If you don't,
well maybe you could at least accept that others may like it and tolerate
that it was an optional setting.
