Why does codechef not remove inactive accounts from the ratings Ranklist?

The global/country ranking of a user is less indicative of their standing in the current competition when the ratings lists contain all accounts created since the beginning of the website. Codeforces enforces a six month inactivity rule after which you are removed for the ranklists until your next participation… even though your rating stays the same. Is there any particular reason why codechef doesn’t have anything like this?
