Well, like it or not it is for "consumer protection". If your QR skewer is loose your wheel still won't come off. Of course one could argue that if you are riding around with a loose skewer you should suffer the accident to teach you a lesson. Alas, as we are all fractions of this world, we must all play to the lowest common denominator.
