As a consumer, would you care if Doom III is compiled from C vs. C++ source? No, you just care if the game runs as promised. What's the difference here?
Put another way: Why do you care if I use 5 words to describe something which takes you 15?
A\ I am a consumer and I deeply care if the source was compiled from C or C++.
B\ Using 15 words instead of 5 to say the same thing is usually done to confuse people.
