It is likely that you'll understand it next week or next month or next quarter. Next year after you haven't worked with the app or the environment or the language is another matter. Documenting the why is simple courtesy to the next developer, and if you do the analysis you'll find that if five minutes spent now saves twenty minutes of puzzlement later it is a good investment.

You will also find that over the decades you memory degrades.
