That way if they aren't getting full oil pressure ( or any at all ) there isn't that much more force of friction?
Also - I've done a complete motor tear down and build, and haven't seen a location that I can hook a gauge up to in 5 min. I know there is a way because there are too many people in here saying it is easy. ... Only places I know of are the oil galleys, which aren't exactly a common adapter you can pick up at your favorite autostore.
I don't think the starter would crank the engine fast enough to see any real oil pressure numbers to begin with.
