Because ICE modifies those strings through indirection and copying all 
the freaking time. Changing that would pretty much require rewritting 
bigger portions of it. And unless you can find me someone 
stup^H^H^Hmart enough to actually rewrite it and start maintaining it 
then we can either be casting or getting about half a billion warnings 
(give or take about 999.999940 million )
