Why are 128kbit/s MP3s usually 44,100 Hz?

Since 128kbit/s MP3s usually has a low-pass filter at 16,000 Hz, and the Nyquist-Shannon theorem states that all frequencies under f/2 Hz can be totally described at an f Hz sampling rate, why not encode at 32,000 Hz? Wouldn't it save more space?

If you listen to tonal problems at 128 kbps, you'll find that resampling to 32 kHz helps a lot.
