It's all in the dynamics and in the feeling: you can't master real drums dynamics if you play always on an electronic kit, just as you can't play properly an acoustic guitar if you always play on an electric one.

Drums especially, because while on the guitar the positions are the same, with the electronics drums you tend to put those little pads closer together than they are on real drums. It's also less fatiguing because of the strong rebound (and the softness of mesh heads on v.drums or similar).

It's too simple to sound good on an electronic kit, and that's addictive in a bad way. To make a real drumkit sound good by hitting it properly is another story.
