What is the reason to have IDLE-UP 1 and IDLE-UP 2 modes

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Original Heliweb Q&A : One Thread

I was wondering way should someone designate IDLE-UP 1 mode for a "fast forward flight / loops and rolls" with -6 +9.5 pith range (+3-4 at a mid stick) and IDLE-UP 2 for a pure "3D flight" with a full pitch range +/- 9.5 and 0 pitch at mid stick. And than have to learn (develop) two different feelings about the flying characteristics of the machine. Why not to have a single IDLE-UP2 and learn everything once.
