Roasting pan moat

I am curious. why is there a "moat" i.e., a 1" ditch around the perimeter on the inside of a roasting pan? I like my roasting pans to be flat on the inside. totally flat. But it seems that every one I order has this "ditch." why? It's horrible for making gravy at the end, and as far as I can tell serves virtually no purpose whatsoever.
