I can think of one: compatibility.

On x86 for instance, coreboot is used to have the same reset vector and
partially the same bootblock for every platform. The hardware isn't the
same, though, and it (probably) can't run in the same way any more. It's
some ROM code (maybe sometimes from flash too?) that actually prepares
what is necessary so we can keep the same software model in coreboot.
