There isn't much to debate about. Almost everyone (possibly everyone) would agree with your view point. If I were to play devil's advocate, the only thing I can come up is that it would mess with the "rhythm" between first and second serves. I guess it is an unsaid rule that the first and second serves should be one after the other with absolutely no gap. The same reason that after serving a let on first serve, players take another ball to serve instead of just using the one in their pocket.
