Some folks steep or cold steep their roasted grains to avoid getting harsh flavors especially if they are having pH problems, see here. Otherwise can't think of a reason unless you're totally maxed out on your mash tun.

On a few batches I have tossed in my specialty grains during the sparge. Listen to the BeerSmith podcast with Gordon Strong (I think) about advanced all grain techniques
