Because it's bad policy: it's better to fail early and as close as
possible to the error point, rather then let the program limp along.
In general, MS made a bad policy call by trying to help badly written
apps to crawl along. This results in the long term in a lot of hard
to track bugs, slower/bloated code, etc. Remember that the road to
hell is paved with good intentions...
