I've never heard what the purpose of the design is, but the bolts are more accessible with a leather saddle as compared to a synthetic base style saddle. So perhaps the saddle is "incompatible" with modern seats. I've also never had this seatpost slip it's adjustment, so the design is great once you get it set up.

Campy did sell a special dog leg wrench to reach these bolts, but Sears makes a nifty off set ratcheting box wrench which is the bee's knees for working on these posts. The ratcheting action means you don't have to reset the wrench for every stroke. Made me go from a NR seatpost-phobe to fan
