I doubt its an anti-piracy thing, since people ripping rented videos aren't generally going to care that the audio isn't absolutely the best. Also, a true pirate would buy the high-end blu-ray and then make copies off that.

It'd be s so they can generate more video sales to the people with high-end audio systems, figuring that those people more willing to pay the extra money. I, like most people, don't have a high-end audio system hooked up to my 1080p tv, so the video quality is the most important thing.
