Itís just the weight of the locker hardware itself.

The weight of the locker hardware is negligible. However, the torque that can be applied to one axle shaft with a locker, is significant.

I've never seen a definitive comment from Toyota regarding why the payload is reduced so much with the locker, but limiting the potential load on a single axle shaft by reducing payload, makes sense.

What you said sounds right. It must be so you donít destroy the rear axle shaft when locked under worst case conditions. Iíd imagine if you donít engage the locker you could increase your payload to the 1165 lbs spec.
Looking around the forum it seems no one has found the official answer but this thread and the @Jetboy posts cover your assessment, and it makes sense.
Vehicle weight capacity with Diff Lock
