1. To be clear, this is more than just substitution of an equivalent exception: there's a minor change in behavior with respect to the resulting exception that is thrown (i.e. the original.) People may wonder, how did the exception escape, but then again, anyone handling it ought to know.

2. Do you want to avoid filling in the stack trace, since the unchecked exception is transient?  Maybe it's not important, since this code path is almost never taken.
