Why is there a separate app for Facebook Chat?

Why does Facebook Chat have a separate app when you can use it within the main app?

I hate Facebook, so I'm only guessing: convenience? I would think some folks prefer doing the heavy stuff on their PCs or with a full featured app. But for quick on-the-go chatting a lighter single-purpose app is more...ahem...more like BBM ;)

Yeah, the app is not necessary to chat by all means, but I find it makes it much easier. Especially on my ancient iPhone 3G as Facebook loads so slowly, with this app chat is actually easily usable for me.
