This is done because the setup overhead of more sophisticated algorithms are often large enough to cause a net loss in performance for small inputs. In other words, a O(n*log(n)) algorithm may turn out to be slower than a O(n*n) algorithm if the former has a larger setup cost then the latter, and n is small.
