Because it can potentially lead to a waste of everyone's time. One of
the major reasons why we require proposals and seconds is to limit the
options proposed to ones that a significant proportion of Developers
actually agree with and plan on voting for.

That's not to say that you shouldn't offer suggestions for
improvements in options that you don't agree with; you just shouldn't
propose or second them. [If it's popular enough to be a useful option,
the people with whom the option is popular will propose and second;
it's not like it's hard to do.]
