The difference is a changeable property of the file on disk (EAs) and a
consistent translation stored elsewhere (in "system" lib of some sort). It
would be disappointing to have files seemingly moving around because your
software rewrites the translation EA. It would be a nice way to play havoc
with your less computer savvy friends...
