Because it's not a good idea to implement the same thing several
times. Bulbs work well, but compact fluorescent lamps are better, :)

It could be a bit terrible when upgrading the map function shared by
several views. It's even worse when the upgrading is just an
optimization: if we forget to upgrade some views' map function, the
total performance downgrades, which will be hard to figure out.

In current implementation, design docs are self-contained. This is the
advantage. Am I correct?
