Why Codeforces does not allow all users to take part in rated contests out of competition?

Hi, I am posting this just to ask if there's a reason for Codeforces not having this option when people register for the contest. It's quite common that I want to participate in some contest, but I will only be able to arrive late(or leave early). Besides this, I believe this is the reason some users create fake accounts, to participate without commitment.
