Because current versions of the FHS states that /mnt is only for temporary/one-off mounts, and /media should be used for anything regular or semi-permanent, such as CD or DVD ROM drives.

POSIX shared memory - one application can write to and permit others access. The most common use I've seen for it is ATi's proprietary fglrx drivers.
