Because it looks more original?
Now truly, it seems like it would achieve the same, although at an
underlying level the machine will handle it differently (not sure to what
extent either). I am trying to think along the lines of overwrite,
recursive copying or even that past story of yours about executive rm -rf
.* as root.
