[FieldTrip] Why the general use of parametric test as observed test statistic for permutation cluster tests?

Hi Fieldtrip list,
I'm just wondering if someone can explain if there is a reasoning behind the general use of a parametric test to calculate the initial step in the permutation cluster test and not a non-parametric test (e.g t-test over Mann Whitey U)? Is it just due to the assumption of a Gaussian distribution or is there something deeper going on?
