Very similar reasons for why you're not allowed to publish benchmarks for Oracle products as well. It's just plain bad PR at a point if someone does a terrible job. On the other hand, it also means that if you're an unscrupulous vendor, you can just squash benchmarks that do not make you look better than your competition.
