And a cracker not connected to their systems, that is.

Seriously, what are they to trace ? Where the IP is located ?
That's obviously something you can do yourself.
And then you'd still need to file a complaint to have someone get in touch

This takes time.

And what if your cracker used an unprotected WiFi network, public library
or university computer, ... ?
