Is there any legit reason not to allow file upload for externally shared forms?

I don't know why Microsoft Developers think File Upload should not be allowed for externally shared forms. I bet, they don't have any reason at all for disabling it (or just a silly reason).

There are already numerous threads/discussion regarding this, but still, why don't they just include this one feature to the Microsoft forms?

@ThePyGuy Microsoft have said that this is to prevent viruses, trojans and other malware getting into their and your systems. Whether you consider this a legit reason....
