Not all Windows editors choke on \n line endings; when I'm on Windows and run into one, I open it in Wordpad (or, if I have one, a dedicated programming editor like SciTE or the Open Watcom editor). AFAIK only Notepad (of standard Windows utilities) has trouble.
Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
It's only really an issue for new / inexperienced users, I agree. Since these files are installed only on Windows systems, there's no reason for them not to have the native line endings.
