It invokes an external command, thus the name.
The distinction is unimportant for other "external" things because
they other don't have output, or require a terminal. But with useful
output, I think it would be perfectly fine to insert it in the current
buffer. As Bill white said, there is no practical reason not to do
so, at least provided that the "Save..." menu entry et al. still work.
