Well without long thinking one example comes to my mind: size of the
mbox containing conversation. Another one is that if the DAM has gone
through ones AM report but is not 100% shure at first sight and wants to
reread the report again later. Again I don't know if this applies to
your case and I'm shure if you sit down and think a bit you'll find out
that there are more than those 2 reasons given here.
Finally it's the DAM who has the burden to decide if somebody is
qualified and fits into the project. It's not a simple check if all AM
questions have been answered in a satisfying way.
And while I'm at it another reason comes to my mind: readability. The
majority of applicants is, like me, non native English speaking and thus
it might be more difficult to understand everything in an AM report.
Anyways I hope I could explain why the DAM queue is not FIFO.
