Yeah I too am ignorant for the reasons they did this, and feel like your method is probably a better mix of the right direction approach. Computationally it might have something to do with it, there might be some data to support looking up a hash in postgresql vs a string is computationally better than generating some text processing.

Like I said though "I dunno!"
