Do you really need to rest your arm on the table to eat?

Not sure I really noticed this until I had g-son for a yr. & was teaching manners but what's up with the arm on the table between the edge & the plate? Seems like they're leaning on it to eat. I guess if you spill it only gets your arm and not the napkin presumably on your lap. Also the fist curled around the fork which is way inefficient!
