Blinking lights hidden

Something's been puzzling me: when I look at my CDC SMD drive, the NCR
applications processor, some smaller SMD drives, LEDs in my 11/44,
etc., there's something I just don't understand. Why did companies
begin hiding blinking lights, status displays, etc. behind covers, in
places behind the front panel that aren't obvious at first glance,
hidden in boards in a card cage, etc.?
