Because, opposite to many other features, this particular features is designed
as an optimisation hint, not as a transformation operation by itself. The only
thing it probably adds is the speed of execution. If it actually slows down operation
and eats memory, then I want to be warned, and I want the implementor to be warned
before I am.
