Adding dry ingredients.

Why do recipes that call for certain items in small quantities -- salt, baking powder, etc. -- instruct you to mix the item in with the other dry ingredients first, rather than to add them right to the wet? It would seem that adding 1 tsp. of salt to the eggs/milk would mean that it would disperse and disolve better than if you added it to the flour/sugar and then added that whole mix to the wet.
