Why are they stamping eggs with a use by date?

I think I heard this was coming, but when I bought a carton of eggs today and opened them to check their condition, I was surprised to find each egg individually stamped (or laser printed I guess) with a use by date. Whatever could the purpose of this be, unless you bought so many cartons of eggs and jumbled them all together and couldn't remember which were older? Seems like a waste of time and money to me.
