Not everyone knows about precondition() in the first place, so when he finds it he will probably find preconditionFailure(), too. On top of that the autocomplete will show it to him each time he starts to type precondition. Third it is a common pattern to provide a failure function, where one does not have to supply a false argument, e.g. In unit test assertions.
