I guess I do not understand this statement as I ask: why?

One should not alter the contents but examination is encouraged.  That is why 
there is the -V option in program lproj.  The stucture is the "definition" of 
the projection operation.  It is the digested result of all the "+args" that 
have been thrown at the initialization.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
-- Havelock Ellis (1859-1939) British psychologist
