Actually they are only providing the tech support for BootCamp, not XP.
I could think of a reason Why I would want to use BootCamp but only one.
I maintain a website for an association I belong too. Problem is I use a

just to run Internet Explorer 6 or above just to see if my pages show up
correctly. That is my "only" reason.
