why need to check if inline doc is already defined?

i noticed that in many addon packages,

they define the inline doc by first checking whether it is already defined,
e.g. at ... Mathematica/7.0/AddOns/Packages/FourierSeries/
FourierSeries.m

like this:

If[Not@ValueQ[SomeF::usage],SomeF::usage = "..."

why does it need to check if it is already defined?
