SharePoint: Saving Publishing Site As STP

Just a quicknote – the link in for saving a site as an stp is not exposed for publishing sites in moss. Im not sure on the reason for this, but found an interesting blogpost discussing this. You can get around this by typing the address http://[siteurltogohere]/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx or by saving a the template via sharepoint designer.

Saving the template as an stp seems to work, but there must be a reason why MS have tried to restrict access to this?
