The same reason that *any* directory is in image-load-path, I suppose.

If MH-E is run within CVS Emacs, then the MH-E user sees MH-E images on
image-load-path. If the user then ran the MH-E package outside of CVS
Emacs, then wouldn't it be strange if suddenly, the MH-E images were no
longer on the image-load-path?
