Keeping low to the ground also has other adavantages besides one mentioned already.

If you are lower to the ground and you fall, it hurts less.

When I ride steep terrain, getting low on turns help me slow down without side slipping. The slower I want to get, the lower I try to bend my knees and ankles.
