Why is lexical-binding's global value ignored?

If somebody does (setq-default lexical-binding t), the intention is obvious. But in current versions of Emacs, when loading a file that doesn't specify a local value for lexical-binding, the global value is ignored. Why?

IOW, what would break if the global value were honored? It defaults to nil, which is already how files are loaded if no local value is specified, so honoring the global wouldn't change anything by default.
