Mostly because it is fairly easy to create and I don't like having to direct people to install other tools which are often bundled with some un-related package (openvpn for easyssl, as an example).

I completely agree. I plan on updating the SIP TLS docs to show how to generate the certs both with the script (for the ;tldr crowd) and with openssl directly.
