I think it's also a throwback to lead piping - when people started to realise the dangers of lead piping, it was gradually replaced but maybe only be the cold water to the kitchen. I know I was always told not to use the cold water in my grandparents' bathroom for brushing my teeth but to go down to the bathroom, because the pipes upstairs were still lead pipes.
