We do not need to, but not doing so would necessitate destructive editing (at least for Filter applications, transformations, …) and that has drawbacks. 

 

What are you really talking about? 

Edit: What exactly do you mean by »effects process«? 

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
