Probably marketing. Works OK, though I'd have liked just a little longer throw personally. On the other hand the longer throw of the Sharp 10K, for example, would have ruled it out for my room. I think BenQ wanted to avoid that kind of scenario for other buyers.
A longer throw option, as is usually the case concerning having options or not, would be nice.
