(As a long term supporter and user of the Mibbit client)

The default nick on the main client is an anti-feature, and a long-term support cost.

It is one of the low-hanging fruit people point at when discussing their dislike of the Mibbit client. Having to choose a nick is a small barrier, but when you let people use a pregenerated nick for any IRC channel, people get annoyed and started banning it. The more people that ban it, the worse PR you get from it, and IMO, the PR loss from it is more damaging than having users spend five seconds inputting a nick.
