Forgive the possibly silly question, but why are rabbets and stops used when inserting glass into doors? I was looking at my doors, as well as some diagrams such as the one below and the glass sits in a rabbet and then secured from the other side with stops. Why not slide the glass into a groove? Is this just so the glass is replaceable, better fit? Or are there other reasons?
