If I was being cynical I'd say they do it because 1674GB seems like you're
getting more GB for your $ (or £).

Just like the high street retail trade who think that shoppers are stupid,
pricing an item at $99.99 instead of $100.

Are we fooled? Not usually, but many $millions have been made on very small

Why does WRKSYSSTS report the ASP pool size based off of 1 Kilobtye being
1000 bytes, unlike every other operating system where 1 Kilobyte is 1024
bytes. It tells me we have 1674 GB, but in actuality we have 1559 GB by the
normal math.

I found an article here that states what I'm saying is true, just no
explanation as to WHY they are doing it this way:
