Also, if a lot of people in a small space all start using cordless phones which operate on the same frequency, there's going to be signal disruption.

But I am not sure if that's the official reason
That is the reason, and your other point applies as well. If a bunch of people came with cordless phones, all operating on the same frequency band in close proximity, they wouldn't be very useful anyway.
