KMZ - Point icons scale value save location

Hey,

Can I ask the reasoning behind saving a point symbol scale as a variable in the filename instead of using the KML supported <scale> parameter in <IconStyle>?

This is what GM does:
<IconStyle>
<Icon>
<href>kml_ext_files/<![CDATA[kml_symbol_scenic view@scale=10_0.png]]></href>
</Icon>
</IconStyle>

This is what the documentation says (https://developers.google.com/kml/documentation/kmlreference#style):
<IconStyle>
<scale>10</scale>
<Icon>
<href>kml_ext_files/<![CDATA[kml_symbol_scenic view.png]]></href>
</Icon>
</IconStyle>

Any response would be much appreciated.

Regards
V
