Because 'Why not?' is easy to answer:

Appendix C means we cannot simply use XML tools to output our content.

Appendix C means we have to make judgements about the technical 
implementation of a page that is not currently testable by a machine, ie it 
increases the QA resources required as we now need to spend testing time 
analysing the code for compatibility rather than just validity.

There are other weaker arguments, but those are the 2 big ones where I'm
