i think it's to reduce the time between a mouse click and an advertising 
impression, but i'm not an author so that's not "authoritative". it seems to 
me that the web's technical community doesn't love its surrounding context 
(the internet, i mean) and expects to eventually subsume it. (guessing.)

resolvers exist for reasons. resolverless anything requires strong motivation.
