Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Because... of privacy...?? Or because any MITM is likely not taking place
 near the site or its network? When you get MITMed, easily telling someone
 who can potentially take action about it is a useful feature. In Tor
 Browser's case the people to tell are those on the relevant list,
 optionally separated from other messages to that list in case of high
 volume or low quality.
