I guess you mean why using the can if the wooden block alone could stand for gouges. Indeed, it is just for aesthetics; in the same sense, one could use a non painted tin, but if we take a couple of extra minutes we can achieve good results not only from the functional point of view, but also aesthetic.
I also like recycling/repurposing.
You're right; stand is useful when you're working with gouges as they have the points to look at and you can choose the one required, which would be impossible if the gouges were reversed. It is also useful for storage when not in use because they are protected from dust and the possibility of accidental contact with the tips is avoided.
