Why is it a tactic in basketball to not foul jump shooters?

Often, jump shooters are accurate free throw shooters and percentages play in the jump shooters favor at the free throw line. For example, a good jump shooter might shoot 46-50% from the field, but at the free throw line this increases to 80% and higher (i.e. ~30% increase in getting 2 or 3 points). One exception would be if the jump shooter has a clear layup or dunk (virtually 100% success). In this case, fouling and preventing the basket is worth it.
