Starter solutions, the use of variables


I always like to explore the filemaker starter solutions to see if there is anything smart I can use. But the Event Management they made for filemaker 14 has something I do not get. 



In the tablet view of  a single event, al the information regarding this event is stored in about 15 variables. These variables are then displayed as merge fields, in a single slide panel, placed in a leading sub summary part.

Is this a common practice? And what benefit does it have instead of just using merge fields displaying field data placed in the Body part. 

Thanks in advance,
