Only because that is what has been used by altpdflatex and then, its  
replacement, simpdftex. I'd guess that PDF 1.2 generation is used  
because there are still many systems that can't handle 1.4 so you  
need to deal with the least common denominator. If you know that the  
folks who will read your document have 1.4 compatibility feel free to  
change it.

Good Luck,
