Why Enhancement-Section and Enhancement-Point techniques were introduced as explicit options

What could be the reason? Why enhancement-section/enhancement-point were introduced instead of leveraging the BAdI as a hook to enhance functionality.

Thank you!

    If the question is what are the differences between explicit enhancement options and BAdI implementations, then the main one is that enhancement options allows adding code inside the enhanced program, while BAdI implementation is code outside the program, so in the first case you have access to all variables, local classes, etc. And of course, combined with the Switch Framework, the code may be inactive by default, and activated by switching on Business Functions.

    If the question is why they gave such a powerful possibility, similar to what standard code modifications are, then I can just presume that they wanted to give internal projects/partners the opportunity to extend the standard/build new solutions easily.
