(Why) are IEC C5/C6 connectors a necessity? Why not use C13/C14?

(Why) are IEC C5/C6 connectors a necessity? Why not use C13/C14?

That's a question I was asking myself the first time I saw such a weird C5 plug. That was a while ago, but I came across it again and haven't found an answer yet.

"There isn't really any difference and comes down to choice of the manufacturer and nothing more than that.

I have seen many laptops and some do have C13 adapters, I have looked at various specification but have not been able to find any logic behind the decision."
