The main problem is that people may expect it to return the 
line-endings of the text file, instead of just what you set it to be. 
As such, it can cause confusion. Just like some properties of an object 
can be read-only, some can be write-only as well. I also can't think of 
any situation where you would want to write something different to the 
file based on the set line endings.
