I searched the issue tracker and didn't find any history about this.
I haven't search the mailing list archives, you might want to try there.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any good reason for this CLI
design, and maybe we should change cp and mv to take >2 arguments. I
remember some discussion about this a few years ago, but I don't
remember the details of that discussion very well.
