Because it makes no sense to open a new window for that ? (except lazyness
of the coder that simply used something existing instead of integrating
properly in the UI, it's fine for a proof of concept but not for something
that we want lots of people to use)

Look how the debconf Gnome interface handles boolean values. It would be
logical to match that behaviour.

Well, use whatever you want as long as the text appears on the screen
immediately (without having to scroll 3 screens on the right). :)
