That usually requires root permission, so it's an extra (annoying)
step. It also gives all kinds or other mostly irrelevant information
for a kernel person.

Besides, according to the same argument, dmesg shouldn't have times
*at*all*. So the "look in your syslog" is pointless for discussing the
dmesg timestamp.
