AFAIK because it's the system bundle and you can create fragments for it
which export additional packages that are available on the system
classpath and that should be made available to all other bundles.

For example, in a J2EE container were you are using the servlet bridge
you would add fragments to export packages that are available from the
WAR or the container.
