Because it is cheaper and easier? It is a lot of equipment there simply
does not need to be there. If you have DSL you have CPE equipment and that
CPE equipment can have FXP out for very little extra. You also save having
filters to separate DSL and voice.

In any case, even the ILEC here is dropping analog and delivering phone
services via VoIP and FXP out on the CPE. I believe because the
technician only needs to go to the DSLAM to connect you. If you are also
getting analog voice, he needs to go to the CO too because voice and DSLAM
are no longer cohosted.
