Reason to duplicate fields?

I'm taking over maintenance on a filemaker project and ran across an interesting field setup in a table.

There are fields like "2016 leader" and "2016_leader" where the first is a text field and the second is a calculation.

The definition of 2016_leader is "${2016 leader}.

Both are referenced in various scripts on this project.

 

Is there any reason why I can't combine those and have the scripts simply use 2016 leader all the time?

 

I can't think of any advantage to doing this.
