Why do imported sites need to worry about versions?

I wrote faithfully about the STSADM Import operation in the book-- that it has a parameter about preserving file versions.

But why? Why is it there?? The import has to be done, by definition, into a blank, empty site. There is no -overwrite parameter, so what versions is it actually going to mess up? Is it going to go back to the original and pull the newer versions in? What is that about?

I am going to mess with this further when I have time. Meanwhile, if any of you out there have an answer, please let me know....
