I think being down 0-3 in Game 7 as well is what puts the comeback over Halladay.
Plus, a 0-3 comeback has bigger implications. A non-hitter is amazing, but in the end it only counts as one win. With the 0-3 comeback you advance to the next round despite everybody and their mom giving you no chance whatsoever. It also helps that the comeback will be mentioned every time a team goes down 0-3 until it gets eliminated.
