I'm not sure on Microsoft's reasoning, but when I design farms, I purposely leave CA on an app server as it is not a high traffic site and won't affect performance of the app server. It's the management tool for your farm, so keeping it on servers that its managing makes sense to me. It also allows you to extract a level of security by not putting it on a ...
