Because he found himself with his connection flooded by
DNS queries after ORBS was disconnected, and wants to recover
his bandwidth.  I am not defending his choices, just reporting
what he said.  There is probably an announcement by him
(Ron Guilmette) on (and other
antispam forums such as SPAM-L).

The other sites running the secondaries are probably not so concerned 
about the extra bandwidth.
