BW technical names strange limitations

Newbie SAP BW Developers asking me about BW technical names limitations:

Info-objects (characteristics and key figures) - max 9 chars,

Info-providers (cubes, multi) - max 9 chars,

DSO - max 8 chars,

SPO - max 6 char.

They found that's not user friendly.

And they asking about  - who did this, for which purposes  and  why in 21 century (with SAP HANA, Big Data, etc) they still exists.

Any thoughts?
