The standard tuning makes chords easier. Let's say you instead are tuned EADGCF, with equal spacing. Let's say you wanna do a barre chord.. you probably see the problem.

Guitar is for chords. Bass is not. Obviously either can be whatever, but that's the more or less arbitrary reason why the standard tunings differ in this respect.
