Well, it wasn't "me" but "we" (before I was part of "we" incidentally) 
but i do think I get the logic.

However "we" (including you) set the rules, so if you think you have a 
good case for adding this feature, don't be afraid to bring it up on  First, search the archives to see if you can 
find and understand the original reasoning (if not ask on dev).  Then, 
explain your use and ask for opinions about whether this should 
challenge the original decision.  Only be ready to accept alternative 
solutions which preserve other important architectural protections.
