I believe the point is to ensure that enough yeast are left to ensure appropriate carbonation without the possibility of off flavors due to too mutation or strain on the yeast.

This practice is common amongst trappist breweries and many others have picked it up as well.

I've seen that procedure pretty frequently with beers that require looooonnnnggg aging periods.

mmm, me too. Of course, I mean the beer, not the alcohol withdrawl shakes.

For anyone reading this that didn't know this - quick trivia of the day: Severe Alcoholics may experience serious shaking, tremors, etc. when going through alcohol withdrawal. The shakes are called "delirium tremens" by doctors.

The Fiance taught me that when I ordered a DT when we were in Paris. She started laughing her ass off. I thought she was being an asshole and making fun of my french or something until she told me why it was funny.
