Any% restrictions

Why can you not use 2 controllers in any%? I thought the point of the category was to use whatever is available, so why is the 2 player mode restricted?

What makes one player more interesting than 2 player? Restricting the 2 player mode is an additional rule, I think that that should be the side category

One player is also the default way of playing the game, so it kinda makes sense for it to be the default category.
