I expect the fgons (face-gones!) will transform to real ngons in time.  
So keeping it pure as actual polygons then saves headaches. Think of  
having subdivide/bevel/knife working nicely with it.

ALso, what you mention about 'much cleaner' is a bit weird... the fgon  
will hide it anyway, and blender renders the unclean faces as nice as  
the clean version. :)
