Why put your stabilizers on jack stands?

We recently saw this in a Colorado camp ground. What practical reason would inspire someone to put their stabilizer jacks on jack stands? I can think of any reason to do so and several reasons not to.

Why on earth? Just need more of the yellow blocks. I can't see those even staying in place. Looks like a dangerous installation!

I'm going to guess from the shiny equalizer hitch bolts and super clean leveling blocks that it's a first or second trip out.

Everything on the trailer was almost perfectly clean and it took them a couple hours to set up. My guess this was their first trip. We all had our first trip, I'm not knocking them for that, but the stabilizers look like an accident waiting to happen. Some common sense would help.
