Benefit of muzzle coverage in IWB holsters?

I was looking at tuckable holsters that use horsehide on one side and kydex on the other. While shopping around, I noticed that only a few companies offer full muzzle coverage for the gun and at an extra charge. It seems that open muzzles are the norm. So besides saving a few cents on the extra kydex, is there a reason for this?

An important and sometimes overlooked purpose for the holster is protecting the gun from you. The salty wetness of the human body is corrosive to metal and guns sure soak it up. So it seems like full coverage would be better. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thanks.
