What is the reasoning behind this?

It seems to me that if a (passing) test is being added, maintenance releases 
are the *most* important places to run them.

On the other hand, I've also seen Raymond check (regression) tests into
only development, so it seems to be a conscious choice.  *I* just don't 
understand it.
