Undock Madness

Before I remove my Thinkpad from its docking station, Windows requires me to click on Start->Undock or press a button on the dock that does the same thing. As far as I'm concerned, undocking is equivalent to unplugging the power adapter, ethernet cable, USB keyboard and mouse and external monitor. None of these steps by itself requires an advance notification to the OS. Why should the combination require me to tell the OS what I'm going to do?
