Default Mini Mash Equipment

Why do kits such as this one. Contain a valve kit?

What is wrong with the cooler's built in system of removing liquid?

A few reasons I can think of.
*The built in one you'd have to hold down while draining the whole cooler.
*The button will get sticky and stuck within the first couple uses without running a lot of near boiling water through it.
*To make it easy to attach tubing to for either recirculating, or draining.
*So you can attach a manifold to the inside without the use of glue or something else.
