If those were to be removed from .hgignore then there would be a high likelihood of someone doing "hg addremove" and inadvertently tracking them. The purpose of .hgignore is to prevent inadventently tracking files that shouldn't be tracked.
If the goal is to prevent something from being committed, shouldn't the check go in a pre-commit hook instead?
Well, it's more user-friendly to help "hg addremove" work as expected, rather than add hooks down the line to forbid pushing any mistakes.
