Cause it would put the rest of the people at a disadvantage per chips.
Say there are 9 people at a table. Everyone has say 900 chips and the leader has 1800. The leader decides to go home and go all-in while one person calls. That person wins and now has 2700 chips. Unfair to the rest.. why cause putting in his blinds would spread out the chips to everyone. This also happens frequently.. the guy who goes all-in wins. Now all of a sudden he doesn't have to leave so quickly cause his chip lead has nearly quadrupled.
I see your point, but why would this person even say he is leaving in that case? Why not just say that they are all in each hand until they lose? I guess it would be kind of a mean thing to do, but they would at least have a chance of people calling and him winning some money before he leaves.
