Why is it bad to use the services you create to communicate with a common proxy?

The docs say:
In the Composite UI Application Block, the term service describes a component that implements some infrastructure-related functionality that other components in the application may need to use; for example, services providing authorization, logging, or hardware communication functionality. It does not mean a Web service.
Composite UI Application Block applications can use Web services, but the service patterns are not suited for use as business services implemented as Web services or Web service proxies. You can create your Web service proxies within your WorkItem and use them just as you would in any other application.
