Should road bike rear hubs be Boosted?

I've noticed mountain bike rear ends are getting wider, some companies are now making trail bikes with 157mm rear hub standards.

This increases wheel and frame strength and stiffness, is there any reason to consider making road bike frames wider? Maybe for the sprinters? Not to the ridiculous 157mm, but maybe 142mm?
