I honestly don't remember the Forum's rationale for this; that's just the way it is.

Brian Barrett and I have a proposal up for to the Forum for making it permissible to call INIT multiple times, etc. We proposed it and it was generally well-accepted; we got some good feedback, so we need to revise the proposal and present it at the next meeting in January. I guarantee that nothing will happen with our proposal before SC. :-)
