5. It is difficult to move a color ad that's an odd size like that one.

Also, depending on the layout program, the person putting the page together may not see what the ad actually is until it's too late. It would be very unusual for a copy editor/designer to do something like that on purpose. I find it odd when something like this becomes "news."
