Question about ICE_CONFIG environment variable in Ice for java ?

For C++, Python and .NET, Ice can use ICE_CONFIG environment variable to get information. However, as Ice 3.1.0 manul says:
The environment variable is not read by the Java run time; with Java, you must use the
--Ice.Config property to set the name of the configuration file (see Section 28.5).

Is there any reason for this ?
