1) It meets the PC requirement of One Size Fits All [cases]. It is no longer PC to put another book at a disadvantage because you have a fancier TOC than a poorer book has.

2) It makes it fit the required minimalistic style requirement of tiny phone screen readers (along with no fonts, no images, no font-face changes. And No fun. ).

3) It makes the book smaller bytewise so it loads faster. Wait! Advantage? That is not PC
