Why do you get cheese on top in sandwiches these days?

When I was taught to make sandwiches, especially subs, you always put the cheese underneath the other toppings. This prevented you from snagging a whole slice of cheese along with your bite of sandwich, and in hot sandwiches "glues" the other fillings to the bread. I have noticed in recent years the disturbing trend of sandwich makers in restaurants (Subway is a top offender) doing the opposite. Why are they being taught to make sandwiches that way?
