An analog might be the major scale in music. The seven notes A to G are 
not equidistant across an octave, yet they "sound nicer" (at least to 
Westerners) so they are given greater weight/bias than the other five 
tones. Dunno if it ultimately makes the life of someone learning music 
for the first time easier or harder, though.
