Why are some inspections performed in groups?

Rough and final inspections rare typically performed once all teh trades have completed their work.  This assures that one trade doesn not damage the work of another, such as an electrician running wire through a sewer line to make an installation.  It also allows the owner or general contractor to look over the project in its entirety and address any concerns before receiving a rejected inspection.
