As far as I can tell from that page, the problem is phase issues in the mono downmix.

The user most vocal about the decrease in sound quality in soundcloud even wrote an article about it Opus Tests. I'm not sure though if his findings are accurate.
I would bet that the average users of SoundCloud are not as knowledgeable when it comes to the various codecs, nor care.  They just want to hear the music and I don't believe the average users will notice a difference between 64 bit Opus and a 128 bit mp3.  It's a streaming service and they need the smaller files to provide users the same service as their catalog and user base grows.
