There is a lot of motivation for doing it this way. Alexei stated one in his 

During development you also want to throw databases away frequently. To set up 
everything in the ZODB by hand again is just totally lame. A lemma to this is 
that we always generate sample data for our applications (via z3c.sampledata 
or now z3c.configurator) so that we can test the application better. We use 
the sample data for manual and automated testing. It would be unpractical to 
do it by hand then.
