Because at that point the schema has to be locked down.
I was trying out Multifield and noticed that previously entered content had suddenly disappeared after I changed a field in the multifield definition. Does this issue mean that that's unavoidable behavior?
@marcvangend: I haven't been able to replicate that with the current code. It might be worth a try, because it shouldn't happen, but it is possible you changed something that is now locked down and would have prevented it.
In the meantime, recent changes mean this should be fixed now, so I'm going to mark it as such. If this is not correct, please re-open.
