If it was halogen then it would still run at around 200o C and therefore would need the second ( IP ) layer of separation glass to prevent the scalding hot bulb from exploding if splashing water were to get to it .

I hate it when sparks use two different fittings in the same bathrooms. And I hate, even more, those scabby mains IP rated fittings where the bulb is so high up its got snow on it.
Edit: and all the dust and insects that accumulate on said extra bit of glass. Ugh.
