here, I'd like to offer a rough guess ...

Because it is common behavior :-) One reason for that (I think) is, that
many software applications support numerous file types. Thus, several
file type icons relate to one "main" software applications (e.g. think
of graphic files being displayed by one tool).
In LibO, we do have these separate modules (e.g. Writer, Calc, ...), the
main software icon (e.g. on Mac OS X for calling the StartCenter).
Consequently, there is a need to supply at least some module /
application icons. Especially since we are somehow bound to the desktop
user interface guidelines, or at least, common behavior. Data type icons
don't show up in the Start menu, for example.
As I said, this is my take on it ... there hasn't been any further
research or depth analysis :-)
