By code, all electrical connections have to be accessible when the house is finished, and in a UL approved junction box. You can't just cover the box behind drywall, there has to be a removable cover plate. You also can't decide to add a cabinet in front of an outlet without cutting out the back for access to the outlet and the connections.

It's not impossible, it just costs more.
Give me ambiguity, or give me something else.
