Interesting point - the CRU (ambulance) bikes use disk brakes, and I haven't had any trouble stopping them in the wet. Brompton used to have a section on their website justifying their decision not to use disk brakes, but it seems to have disappeared now; I think they basically said "overhyped". For my touring bike (the one I was riding yesterday), I did discuss braking options but I went with the shop's advice, but I can't remember why they recommended rim braking; possibly reliability, thinking of non-urban cycling.
