Because it can Eva, because it can.

That's the answer several folks gave me back in 2006 when I complained of my annoyance about Word simply deleting all bullets from the manual I was in the midst of creating.

Thank God for Ctrl-Z and they all came back.

And yes, I was using the Word styles and all the built-in stuff.

Because it can, because it can, because it can.

When you're the 800-lb gorilla, you don't need a reason to do anything.
