If you read the Guide, you'd see the argumentation for even inventing
this concept. It's mainly to stop people from using ASCIIZ strings by

Well, they can't be reading the text well since it carefully explains,
with examples, why strings cannot be ASCIIZ. It hits the very first
example, Hello World, and it's explained practically as the first
abstraction. Strings are length-delimited. Period.

If there's anything in the text that isn't clear, or is incorrect, let
me know. However I can't be responsible for the collective
misconceptions of people who don't read it.
