Tile Trim - Wall or Reveal?!

So I'm struggling to get my head around this - please could someone clarify for me...

Why would you fit tile trim to the reveal and not the wall?

Tiling my bathroom (badly based on my other thread/dilemma!) and will have cut edges going around the reveal on the wall side - I.e. Looking at the window, the wall will not have an uncut edge butting up to the reveal. So in my head it makes sense to put trim on the wall side, hide the cut edge and the reveal will have clean edges against the trim, cut edges against the window where they'll be hidden by silicone.

Tiles are 200 x 250, white glazed, laid brick pattern and will have grey grout.
