Amiga, 68000 and CPU speed

Over the years I've repeatedly noticed that CBM (and others) have used the 7.14 MHz figure when citing the speed for the 68k CPU based computers, when the real speeds are 7.09 and 7.16 MHz for PAL/NTSC respectively. I know it's no big deal, but I've always wondered why this number came into use. Was it so people would just have to deal with one specific frequency instead of two?
