[v11] BOM No. in Work Order - why is this Mandatory?

I am playing with Work Order and see that the BOM No. field is mandatory. I think this is fine as a default but it is not possible to unmark the “Mandatory” check box in customize Form with a “Not allowed to disable Mandatory for standard fields” error message.

From my point of view it is fine to have this as a default but don’t relaly see why (from a business process point of view) it should not be possible to use Work order for item which do not have any BOM.
Can anyone shed some light on why this is required? If not, I’d think this restriction should be removed and the Work Order Document should be usable without a BOM.
