Why is needed to specify the playlist name for each entry?

playlist

I’m reading the documentation available at https://docs.libretro.com/guides/roms-playlists-thumbnails/. May I ask you a question about the playlist file format used by RetroArch ?

Say for example that we’re working on a N64 playlist named “Nintendo - Nintendo 64.lpl”. When you wrote an entry for a game, like for example this one:

1. /storage/roms/n64/Legend of Zelda, The - Ocarina of Time (USA).n64
2. Legend of Zelda, The - Ocarina of Time (USA)
3. /tmp/cores/mupen64plus_libretro.so
4. Nintendo 64 (Mupen64Plus)
5. EC95702D|crc
6. Nintendo - Nintendo 64.lpl

I always asked what’s the meaning of the last parameter, alas the name of the current playlist file. I can suppose that there’s a good reason for having this parameter repeated over and over, but I can’t imagine which is it. Could you tell me why is needed to enter the name of the playlist file for each entry?

Thanks
