Umm, because wire rope manufacturers say so? It's a moving material and
anything that moves should be lubricated.

15 years for a set of galvanized aircraft wire rope left dry. Making new
cables only costs about $100(if you have the Nicopress crimper).
The recommended lube is not sticky and does not attract particles. If
you're using something that is sticky, it's the wrong stuff.
