    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.
