This looks like a duplicate of #7927. Reading between the lines, the response there seems to be "That is how Firefox behaves and we want Tor Browser to work the same as Firefox unless there is a very good reason for it to be different."

Replying to mcs:
It is trivially possible to distinguish between Firefox and Tor Browser on the wire already, not that changing this pref would affect that either way. The reason for changing it is because users connect other applications to the running Tor than just the browser, such as IRC clients.
