I think this is usually done to avoid tedious map traversals in order to restore health. What would you rather do: spend 20 minutes moving back and forth to a hospice in order to receive healing from a cleric/healer, or spend a few seconds waiting while your health recovers? I guess they could throw up a graphic saying you tromped back to get your health fixed, then returned.
Not only do I prefer the challenge of knowing I'll have to lug back to town to get my Cleric rezzed at the risk of getting killed by a kobold I can't stand the idea of levelling up in a dungeon. You should need to see a trainer.
