When you go to edit the timestamp of a post, new or existing, it populates
with a time.  If it's in the evening, it's going to be a value higher than
12.  The way you suggest, for people who do not want to use 24 hour time,
they would have to select the PM option and then subtract 12 (unless you do
that automatically with JS).  Either way, it's a usability issue.  And
that's not laziness, it's just the way that a large portion of WordPress'
audience does
