No particular reason, but notice that it doesn't spend very long in SIQS. 0 seconds to be exact. Checking the input for various properties is the first thing siqs does. And also the first thing other routines do as well. It isn't part of the autofactorer loop because one could write something like this instead of factor, and then no primality test would be performed:

siqs(ecm(pm1(rho(trial(n,10000))), 100))
