The master task of a larger parallel job might exceed h_vmem by just starting dozens or hundreds of qrsh clients. The job is then simply
killed, which is unexpected and annyoing for the user.

One might argue that a job that is restricted to some memory usage just can't start more then a specific number of slave tasks, but then SGE
could handle this situation nicer.

One could also argue that starting the slave tasks is part of Grid Engine, not part of the job, so it shouldn't be counted to the h_vmem
limit of the job.
