I was told you wait until the plugs are lit and hot to keep from dumping huge amounts of fuel into the cylinders while cranking and waiting for the plugs to get hot enough to ignite (on the assumption that starting your car with a big BANG in every cylinder is typicallly bad for it). The excess would explain the smoke - perhaps this is all about air quality rather than longevity though...
