Because addressing this in the linker requires the solution to be put in one
place and makes it easily accessible (via command-line switch) to all who want
to use it.  Any bugs introduced thus need only be fixed in one place.

The workarounds require each user to develop his own custom solution to the
same problem, increasing the complexity of development.  And every one of these
ad hoc solutions would have to be maintained and debugged separately.

It's a basic application of the concept of modular design.  Localize a
recurringly needed solution in one place rather than requiring everyone to
invent it independently.
