Because it's not just for PHP.  Most other people don't NEED
SCRIPT_FILENAME (or at least in my experience) and I think it's a good
thing to not needlessly pass along a value made of variables that must
be resolved.

That said I'll be including fastcgi.conf instead of fastcgi_params on
my PHP boxes now :).
