There's no advantage on '68s and 9s, since you don't have the enrichment contacts in you 
TVS. OTOH, there's no disadvantage, so it was easier to just tell everyone to turn their key 

Plus, if you have the simple primer pushbutton, it only works if the key is ON, so the 
simplest instructions are to turn the key ON, prime, and start, and maybe pump a time or 2 
while priming.
