"What so difficult about letting out another hundred feet of rode?"

...Other boats in a crowded harbor on shorter scopes. Hence my question on short scope with modern anchors.
BTW...if you let out 100+ feet in 10ft of water (i.e. 10:1+ scope) you are effectively preventing others from using the anchorage as it fills up...ONE of my real pet peeves is boats in crowded harbors that do that and then yell at you for anchoring too close (they always do). I like to anchor in front of those boats on a normal scope and then tell them to take in some rode if they complain!
