[Rubygems-developers] Gems as Ruby programs (or not)?

At the Software MFA program I attended in Illinois recently, I was talking
about RubyGems with one of the other attendees and he started really
grilling me on why the gem files (not the specs) are Ruby programs.
He did a pretty good job of convincing me. By the end of the
conversation, I couldn't really think of a good reason (that would
outweight the negatives--mainly security issues).
Any thoughts? Is there some reason that I've forgotten?
