Comment (by Technologov):

 Yes, there is a very good reason.

 I want to be compatible across the board, with multiple platforms, namely:
 Debian Linux, Windows 7 (and 10), Android, ChromeOS, Apple iOS, Mac OS X
 -- using built-in media player, without any 3rd party codecs/or players.
 (and Windows XP, using 3rd party codec)

 The only way to achieve my goal is to use MP4 container with
 H.264/MPEG-4-AVC video codec and AAC-LC audio.
