I started this whole thing, along with writing the original guides for 
people. This was done due to a very high level of questions in the 
forums - it wasn't done for fun :) And answering those questions time 
after time gets really tedious.
This thing is user-led, and we cater for all users.

Remember as well that people may want to move hosts, create a dupe blog 
for testing, move their blog inside their machine. There are other 
reasons apart from a crash that people may want a backup to work with.

This is not a bad thing.
