Why can't the magnet be mounted to the moving window, and the Nest Detect mounted to the frame?

I have black windows so the bulky Nest Detect looks pretty ugly on the window. I'd much prefer the small magnet on the window instead. It says not to do this, but I'm not sure why? The magnet moves away and triggers the sensor. Am I missing something important?
