That style of writing everything in a single line will usually cause that line to exceed the default fill-column of 70. I believe most of the code in emacs source tries to keep the line lengths around that number.

Also I am one of those people who prefer keeping line lengths around 70-80 characters. The 3-space indentation style helps achieve that goal. IMO breaking up forms like define-derived-mode, define-minor-mode, etc makes the code easier to read if each key-value component is written on a different line.
