Because trying to maintain one file is a huge PITA.
I've been running RRDTool for almost 9 years now, and 
I've found that the best way to do it is to create a config 
file for each device.  I'm sure there are other ways, 
but with this method, you can have a very manageable 
master config file, and when a device changes, you 
just create an individual configs with an "Include" 
statement for each in the master.
