The reason for this is simple, they do allow computer to computer networking. I'm not sure if all schools are like this, but we have one person who set up a network only server running ffsearch, and you can find thousands of gigabytes of Music, and hundreds of movies, TV shows, and other media commonly downloaded via P2P. Its much faster, 100mbit switches connect our computers together, so it takes a matter of seconds to download ISOs or full length movies. It really takes the point out of P2P when everything is availible on the campus network anyway.

Fundamentally, there may be no basis for anything.
