Because such functions as `read-from-string' directly use
minibuffer. I have extensive use of such functions in my work and
other people use it as well. Heaving a header in minibuffer would help
my workers understand better what is meant with the input.

>From manual:

The “minibuffer” is where Emacs commands read complicated arguments,
such as file names, buffer names, Emacs command names, or Lisp
expressions.  We call it the “minibuffer” because it’s a special-purpose
buffer with a small amount of screen space.  You can use the usual Emacs
editing commands in the minibuffer to edit the argument text.
