The specific commit where it happened was
26ed66b23335eb389f1f2859e409f46f66279e15, which says:
"Deducing the results from some other arguments is not obvious.
Moreover, it prevents users from setting, e.g., :file-ext, in a node
property, as every block would then create a file."
The commit also links to this thread:
I wasn't involved in that discussion, but I think the idea is that you
could create a subtree with many named source blocks each creating a PNG
file, set the :file-ext parameter at the subtree level, and have the
file names auto-created from the source block names.

Yes, also that page could use some other updates, e.g. there are some
dead links in there.
