That's the point - it requires MS technologies for something that shouldn't need it. It's a bit like telling Ford owners that they can only buy their petrol from pumps on a Ford garage forecourt.
Why should I have to wrap the binary up, when they're simply going to unwrap it at the other end? If it was going by Royal Mail, I can see the point of wrapping it up in paper, but on the Intar-tubes?
