Personal opinion--because some people are required to go to those events, and that means they have to be able to. I firmly believe that the less we put into law, the better, because you never know what might happen.
For instance, we had to change our coronation site at the last minute for various reasons. Having the flexibility to pick from two or three dates meant we could get a good replacement site when it might have been booked the rest of the time.
We do not (or at least I do not) want AEthelmearc to become as set in stone as some of the other kingdoms. It makes changing things and doing new things incredibly difficult. One of the most wonderful things about this kingdom is that it has flexibility and people aren't forever saying "We can't do that, because this is the way we've ALWAYS done it".
