it was. Plus, there's a quad there, and we all like to have thuings on the ground underneath items, don't we?
I agree that some of the things in this map are a bit gimmicky - the rising platforms in particular. However, these platforms were in the original (doom2) version of the map. The rising platform under the rocket launcher takes some of the focus away from the rl, and also provides cover while up. But anyway =]
