Your question, "Is there a reason for this?", is one of my favorite questions. It has been adequately answered by Hotboy and oboist2 in this case. But I would say, as a general answer for all folk technologies (of which oboe playing and reed making are excellent examples) the answer generally is, yes, there is a reason, but it may be one resting more on history and superstition than on sound scientific reasoning. "This is the way my mentor taught me to do this and he/she was an admirable and accomplished person who obviously knew what they were doing, so I will do the same, assuming there are good reasons for doing it this way." And then you find that a variety of different people will have convinced themselves of different reasons for the practice.
