Subject Odd SDK code for the day

In mx:Label we have:

    mx_internal function getMinimumText(t:String):String
         // If the text is null, empty, or a single character,
        // make the measured size big enough to hold
        // a capital and decending character using the current font.
        if (!t || t.length < 2)
            t = "Wj";
        return t;   

The explanation makes sense ie says what exactly it does but why does it do this? It means
that width of "9" greater than  width of "99" as it called by measure.
