[Haskell-cafe] Haskell interface files: Why used? What about same data in object files?

I am trying to understand the design of the Haskell interface files. Why 
are they a separate file rather than having the same data in the object 
file generated by the compiler? (Naively, it seems to me this would work 
also. Am I missing something?) Thanks.
