I even asked Matt this question last year in a PM and he said the following to me.
"We decided to go more toward the 5'10" tellarite to give a slight bit of diversity... and so that you don't see a ton of really large tellarites running around!
What's the big deal on restricting them on a few inches. ( I'm mostly saying this cause my Tellarite was intended to be 5'7" and i'm 2 inches short... pun not intended. )
Our current max height for Tellarites is much closer to 5'11", if you take into account maximizing their height and leg length sliders. Attached image from our dev editor showing this. (we have a nifty height scaler in there)
