The bigger question behind this one is why is it not okay to walk around nude in real life?
In Vancouver where I live, nudity is widely accepted and there is ample opportunity given for these freedoms, but in most parts of the world, this freedom is non-existent.
The answer to "why we can not walk around naked" is some long time ago in pre-medieval times, we gave up the rights to our bodies to follow the moral codes of strict religious leaders. To not follow these codes carried punishment most severe, even death!
Today, the state still controls how we are allowed to present ourselves in public.
No matter how hot it gets, or how impractical clothing is in a certain situation, you must remain covered by law
With the advent of body scanning (so far only in airports but all sensor technology is becoming cheaper & thus more prevalent) combined with the decline in popularity of all the religions which provide the "reasons" for clothes, I'd expect clothing someday to become optional in most parts of the developed world, probably by 2050.
We will move forward someday, whenever we realise this rule no longer serves any purpose.
The mandatory-ness of clothing is just a long running social trend that today seems increasingly outmoded.
Once most real life environments allow one to walk around naked without issue, Second Life will follow suite. I think Linden Lab only has this rule in an attempt to make the Second Life environment more palatable to the world's many cultures where simple nudity is still considered a ghastly offensive sin.

Me & my partner go to a nude beach several times each summer. Once you get over the "strange" factor, it feels very natural.... cause it is
Last month I participated in the World Naked Bike Ride. It happens just once a year, a chance to bike around town in the nude, very fun! It isn't technically legal by law, but police allow it (and give us nice escort) because it is harmless, & the community reaction is very purely accepting & supportive... everyone loves it!
