I suspect it's because we're looking for some sort of "standard" or benchmark or optimum that we can rely on...maybe eliminate as a factor as to why we aren't all jedi.
I wish you well on your journey. You certainly aren't the first to seek a standard and you won't be the last, but after using two handers for 16yrs and selling them for 11yrs I'll say your search for the magic standard will be mostly fruitless in the end. You may well find the standard for "you" but your standard will not work for everyone. There are just to many variables between casters.
I've got to believe that the engineer had something in mind.
I will add this. The engineers do have something in mind, but since they are humans like the rest of us it's not always the same something.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
