    well, there is 1 strong reason for it. say, i've customer name & ph_no as dimensions, BOBJ will try to calculate for both these objects if included in single query.
    If you are aware about calculation contexts, you will quickly realize the impact of this behaviour. BOBJ will distinguish all measures included in query by ph_no too. it means more processing, lesser performance & ambiguity.
    apperently,if u define ph_no as detail, BOBJ will never consider it for the calculations & hence improving reliability.

    hope i've made my point clear.
