Comment (by DvanKooten):


 On top of all already mentioned benefits, this'll ditch the dependency on
 `get_file_data()` to read the plugin/theme information making it much
 easier to get that same info from outside of WordPress. Gulp was mentioned
 already but there's loads more of course.

 `wp_get_theme()` and `get_plugin_data()` could take care of this in a
 backwards compatible way, so that can't be a reason not do this.
