Elbow rule doesn't make sense

The elbow rule has been clarified but it doesn't make sense. When uke falls on both elbows it is considered a Waza-Ari (see above).

However, if uke falls on one elbow, it is considered no score (see below). Does this mean this rule will encourage uke to fall on one elbow instead of two? Is that somehow safer than fall on both elbows? What is the logic in that?
