Why do vendors make printers with sub-ream paper trays?

You buy paper in reams, and the manufacturers tell you to not leave open reams lying around... AFAIK it is just like building houses with shallow basements - it's jsut another run or two of cinderblocks to make a wonderful tall basement. To increase most printers to accomodate a full ream should only mean adding an inch or so the the height of the paper tray...
