There’s a number of reasons, but the main one was that it makes the tool stack unpredictable and prevents the tool from caching the next functions in the call stack. It also gives us a point at which we can "turn on” interception of the QMPI_Register_function call so that meta-tools can intercept registration and start creating their own call stacks.
