"Why" would need to be asked to whomever designed SAP. I doubt they are the members of SAP Community here (and might as well have retired already, considering the age of SAP ERP).

I've asked a question about the status back in 2013 but haven't really got an answer. From the technical standpoint, this is not wrong. In the delivery-related billing scenario we do not create an invoice with reference to the order, so in the order the delivery status is updated and in the delivery the billing status is updated. This allows the SAP programs such as Delivery Due List and Billing Due List to function correctly. I guess SAP haven't thought that some customers would want statuses updated differently for their own needs.

There is, however, annual customer initiative in SD, so anyone could join it and request a change. The current cycle should be wrapping up now and if the next one starts it will be sometime in September. More information is on website.
