Default Why?

So I just did a reseal on my oil pump for an ea82 1.8L and a part of that process is taking the belts off. My question is, why do you need to do the whole process of adjusting the cams and crank to a specific location for it to start properly? What happens to it to why you can't take the belts off, then back on even if you don't move the crank or cams at all.

there is no reason
procedures usually just include things like that because so many people are so stupid, and some don't understand the fundamentals enough to know that IF you move something relative to another THEN you need to reset all of them.
If you don't move anything there is no need.

really the only concern is making sure you pull the belt on the tensioner properly so the slack is on the back side of rotation
