Another reason is safety
A setting of 4-20 on a CPAP is pretty safe.  That is at most a PS of 3 applied om a sliding scale.

on a BiLevel the same 4-20 has been taken as EPAP of 4 and IPAP of 20 which means a PS of 16, a completely different story.  I've seen that mistake made by both AB members and Sleep Clinics setting a machine up that way.
