Quoting myself: "To have full control of input data". In development, full
control is always preferable over partial control when something is unknown.
Full control provides more flexibility regardless of a specific case.

Yes, this is main idea/purpose of the bug. Though I as web-developer would
prefer to have full control over input data.
