It's to stop users from creating 10 alts to boost their post up to the front page fast, and to stop bots. Just stop by /v/Introductions, earn 1 IKP, and you should be able to upvote then.

I didn't think about that. Personally I'd rather be prohibited from posting new content than be able to upvote, but I can see now how that could be detrimental. Thanks for pointing that sub out.

For now I would say it's better to leave it like it is. As long as we don't have that big of a community, you could simply create some accounts and get on the front page without the restriction. And even if you can't do that, in small subverses you could still boost your own post easily.
