Because you wont have to apply 1000 styles
Unfortunately conditional styles are not the solution we are looking for.
Imagine a conditional style, which can be turned on and off. This style should be responsible for coloring a textfield. This texfield should be able to have any color. This style should be used in mutliple reports.
By using conditional styles we would have to create a condition for every possible color.
In combination with a second property this would result in countless styles.
