As far as I know, it´s an issue of data volume on the download servers.
Which, no doubt, is an question of money.
Actually it is just a choice: it does lower the barrier for someone to
host a mirror, but the size and upload time are comparable; the ratio
between the space needed to host LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org is not
an order of magnitude but something like 1/5 or 1/6, especially now that
LibreOffice partially dropped support for several dozens of languages
(that were actually untranslated).
You should also consider that the help pack is kind of optional in
LibreOffice, since LibreOffice relies on online (i.e., on a website)
help as its primary help system.
