Whether the cover is generated or not is immaterial, the point is that given an epub file, if the user wants software to automatically replace the existing cover the only way the software can know that the file has an existing cover is via the guide.

This is not an issue for an editing software like Sigil, since the user can just manually remove the cover, but it is for an automatic converter like calibre.
