To answer your question succinctly, it was done to make your question more objective sounding.
To get more analytical, DA is kind of an odd sub-forum on the Stack Exchange network since it's a objective Q&A knowledge base for a CMS/framework that's designed to adaptable from the core to fit many use scenarios.
Thus, there's a conflict between the question's subjective aspects and trying to maintain a Q&A KB that's suppose to maintain definitive answers.
For example: in your comments about the Drupal way, you've defined "best" as:
- Easiest to implement
- Most performant
- Most intuitive to maintain
- Follows best practices
- Encouraged by the framework maintainers
Putting aside that there still remains subjective aspects there (e.g. "How can something be the most intuitive?"), you're trying to optimize ("best") 5 different attributes that can often conflict with one another (e.g. performant vs ease of implementation). With a question like this, you're likely to get more opinions than facts/knowledge (which is what you're here for).
Ultimately, the only way to mitigate this problem is by refining questions, such that subjective bits are shorn off, so they can have definitive answers (and perhaps short/simple enough to not need pages of text to understand).
