Because that's what the specification says.

Note that both of these classes are simply `veneers'. They use the
SocketImplFactory instance specified by setSocketImplFactory to create
a SocketImpl. Each method then just calls the corresponding method(s)
of the SocketImpl instance to perform the work.
