Yea, at most I could imagine someone writing an autoconfig script or something that depends on this difference. However, I doubt there's any autoconfig scripts that rely on being able to set them on a pipe, but not on a fifo that would break.
Oh, wait, that's assuming autoconf is sane, which may exceed the evidence on the record...
