Welcome to the 21st century.

It's sort of like laws get written, passed, and enforced in the legal system by lawyers, so -- guess what! -- they're oriented toward lawyers who can then charge multiples of engineers' fees to help anyone who unfortunately gets entrapped by that selfsame system.
It's not sort of like that at all. Laws get passed when people with money decide they want them passed and they're oriented so the same people with money can have their asses covered at taxpayer expense. So you get manufactured product exemptions in the engineering laws and protective clauses and earmarks for roads to nowhere.
