Because you/we are not everybody and reasonable measures should be taken to protect "your" customers and the manufacturers future.

Plus you don't need a FAC Dealer licence to stock them so there's lots of business reasons as well, you just don't agree with it but you may if your livelihood and future depended on it. Making stuff in the UK is hard so why make it harder and risk your own future? It's not like they've made them impossible to reach is it?

Interestingly not all manufacturers fit AT anyway.
See above but they don't need to, it's obvious why it's there.
