Downloading "Setup.exe"

Why do people insist on offering downloads of their software using the annoyingly uninformative filename "setup.exe"? Case in point...

This is especially annoying if your download manager is set not to ask for download location etc.. Something along the lines of {ProductName}_{Version}.exe would be perfectly acceptable i.e bare minimum. Feel free to chuck in {Publisher}, {ReleaseDate}, _setup, etc if you feel that way inclined ;)
