Imagine an 18-wheeler moving truck. The trailer is 50 feet long. The owner/operator of the truck requires you, the driver, to always carry a significant quantity of spare parts to meet any on-the-road contingency. The first 10 feet of the trailer are chock full of batteries, extra gas cans, spare parts, tires, and even a full set of tools with which to address any breakdown.

Some 20 percent of the trailer's load-carrying capacity is given up to hauling around these heavy, if seldom used, parts! Efficient? No. Costly? Yes.
