You are making these changes because you can. You skills help you to run 
better sites. But even if you had not the skills you yould still use 
Drupal. Sure, your sites would lack a feature here and there, but that's 
not the point. The point is that Drupal "out of the box" works for a lot 
of people and you don't need to know PHP to set up a site which already 
has a lot of features.
