more meaningful traces?

I noticed several files in dlls/winmm have a getMessage() function to
translate message numbers to message names. This is extremely helpful
for debug traces, where one can immediately see the name of the
messages sent, instead of wondering what 0x105 is.

So my question is, why is winmm the only component translating its
message? Is there some downside to having message names in the traces?
