Why are Summary fields...fields?


     Can someone explain why a Summary field is a field - as opposed to a Layout control?

     Why is a value that is not reflective to a specific record a field for that record?

     It seems to me that a Summary field holds a temporary value depending upon a Layout's definition.

     Am I missing something?
