I think one reason functional language features are making their way into languages is just because they're shorter for a lot of situations! If a programmer is used to using functional features on lists, having to jump back into using for loops feels like such a hassle, so it makes sense that they would implement those features.
It's not all laziness though, it often goes with being more 'expressive', closer to a human explanation of what you're trying to do.
