Default Tire rotation question

The Subaru owner's manual says to rotate tires front / back on the same side. Conventional wisdom, including tirerack's site, suggests to rotate nondirectional tires on an AWD car using a rearward cross pattern.

It seems to me that wear would be more even switching left/right with the cross pattern. Does anyone know the reason for Subaru's recommendation? Is it simply to have the same procedure for directional and nondiractional tires?

Are you looking at the STi manual or WRX manual. Noted: 04+ WRX/STi manuals are the same but have with different section for the two.

2002 Impreza manual. "Rotating the tires involves switching the front and rear tires on the right-hand side of the vehicle and similarly switching the front and rear tires on the left-hand side of the vehicle. (Each tire must be kept on its original side of the vehicle.) "
