My guess is a combination of ignorance and probably a desire to fit more
images on a CD.  Put simply - if you want the best quality scans, insist
that the files they provide are in TIFF (uncompressed or LZW compressed)
format, and go elsewhere if they refuse.  Be prepared to pay for the cost
of writing the files on CDR.
