I added it on the basis on an e-mail I received about C-i conflicting
with the use of <tab> as a completion key. (This is quite popular,
judging by and the storm
of blog posts retrieved by Google.)

However, binding C-i in vi state shouldn't affect the binding of <tab>
in Insert state -- it would only be a problem if you for some reason
complete words in vi state. Evidently, some people do, as I did
receive a confirmation that my change fixed the problem.
