Default Oatmeal Stout Fermenting at Low Temps?

Just finished move to my secondary with an oatmeal stout that is heavy with coffee concentrate and 10 oz of cocoa nibs. Variation on a Papazian book recipe that calls for three to four weeks at 40-50 f. Irish Ale Wyeast. Why would he call for low temps w ale yeast?

Update. Instead of letting this sucker go dormant in the fridge I pulled it out yesterday and it's hanging out at a "toasty" 63 degrees in the basement. If anyone knows the reason for the low temp recommendation I'm still interested.
