The reason for it being as it is was explained by Doctor Q earlier in this thread:

...we've gotten burned when we allowed the full membership to delete their own posts, because they would delete an entire thread that they had started (by deleting the first post) if they didn't like the way the thread was going, causing everyone else to lose their posts in that thread. So the moderators delete posts on request but make sure an entire thread won't be lost.
And it's in the FAQ, in this section.

You must have missed the part about sending a contact if you have a reason to have a post deleted. As long as it doesn't disrupt a thread, there's no reason your request will be denied.

We also expect that the small percentage of members who actually can alter what they've post in this way not abuse it. If they did, I suppose we'd have to rethink the way it's set up.

“cluttered and inefficient” is a relative term.
