UPDM Inspections

I am trying to figure out why in the UPDM that some inspections, such as the Regulator Inspection and Valve Inspections,are point features and not a related table.  I can not make sense of it. 

What are the benefits of them being point features over a related table?  It seems like it would make more sense for the regulators to be point features and the inspections to be a related table. 

We are in the process of moving a lot of our inspections to ipads via the ESRI collector app and I want to make sure we have the best back end database set up before proceeding.

Thanks for any help or thoughts.

This subject came up at the UPDM presentation at the 2015 EGUG Conference. I did not note why they chose to do this as it did not directly relate to my interest, but I do recall there had been some specific reasons. Tom Coolidge at ESRI might be your best resource to get a clear answer on this matter.
