Yeah I don't get that either.

I agree with your points over what should and shouldn't be, but I think we 
have to basically allow all of them, including those you think we 
shouldn't, because there might be some rare use cases where they make 
sense. Generally, as noted several times today, I'm against banning things 
that aren't very clearly bad.
