Let me hazard a guess.

TV standards and capabilities are always behind anything they develop for video. Because most LCD/LED TVs still follow the 60i/30i/30p as the standard capabilities, what camera makers do is "wrap" the 60p video in a container that is 60i just so it can be played by the TV. Otherwise, there is no way to play a 60p.

In 3-5 years, new TVs will probably have 60p capability playback. But by then, the bar will likely be raised and cameras will be 120p or 240p. No doubt, they'll use some trickery again to put those in the lower or existing display standard.
