The point is cost.
This is oversimplified, but the principle is decreasing bandwidth consumption is desirable because the more bandwidth we use the more it costs to host the site. The introduction of the page transitions and latterly thumbnail pages greatly reduced bandwidth use upon introduction. It appears that the transitions modify the behaviour of the surfer, rather than clicking through all the larger images, they are more selective in chosing which ones they actually want to view.
Just as an aside, how long does a page transiation take on your computer? It should take less then 2 seconds, under 1 on a newer machine.
