Several reasons:

1) principle of common denominator.  You always have to cast widgets to the
correct type when using them, so you may as well store everything in the base
type and cast into specific instances as required, rather than storing in a
specific type and casting up into the generic types.

2) it is the style used by all of GTK+, and all of GNOME.  libmokoui could be
different, but at some point you'll get a patch "cleaning up" the library which
will do this.
