Why do we remove Xorg packages after installation?

The example shell script loop on http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/x/xorg7.html
does `rm -f $package' as its last command for each package in each Xorg section.  I'm just
wondering why, having downloaded the package, we then suggest to delete it, such that if
someone wants/needs to recompile it, we'd need to reinstall it again?
