1. if it doesn't happen in 30 days it isn't going to
2. They don't want their order books willing up with way out limit order that may never get filled
3. They don't want to get sued by some jackass that puts in a $30 buy on a $100 stock and winds up buying it on the way down when XYZ goes BK, etc.
