The reason why it makes sense is to alert the user that the application

If you open the file directly, the blank document won't appear. If you
open the file after the blank document has appeared, it will _replace_
the blank document, so no need to manually close it (this behavior is
also required by AHIG).
Anyway, there's an option in beta 4 to choose the behavior.
