Because it's _experimental_ - meaning it's full of broken stuff, and you 
really want to keep tracking the latest fixes to it, once you've taken leave 
of your senses and installed it in the first place.

[really, I don't think you have to be nuts to use PPAs - I've installed KDE 
versions more raw than those - but it is NOT sane to install a PPA when you 
have to ask questions like "Do I have to remove [it] from the repository 
after the installation'.  Kids, don't do this at home when you don't know 
what you're doing!  And, btw, the PPA _is_ the "repository": you mean 
"remove the repository from my sources"]
