Because then you have a method of using streams with applications
that aren't aware of streams.

Or perhaps you have a file you know has different access patterns to
the rest of the files in a directory, and you don't want to have to
set the stream on every process that opens and uses that file. e.g.
database writeahead log files (sequential write, never read) vs
database index/table files (random read/write).....

It's not wrong, your behaviour model is just different You have
defined a process/fd based stream model and not considered
considered that admins and applications might want to use a file
based stream model instead, so applications don't need to even be
aware that write streams are in use...

Cheers,

Dave.
