Because it requires that you think about the design of your project
before you start coding.  Once you did that, the separation comes out
of this automatically.

But if you're comfortable with it, do it that way.  Just don't expect
anyone to test this feature regularly (IOW: it's not a well-maintained
feature, and if it breaks some day, the breakage might easily make it
into a gcc/binutils/avr-libc release without anyone noticing before
the release is done).
