Because sometimes you have several layers (that's sort of the point of
layers, otherwise the concept of layers would be useless). Just to give
a simple example: you open an image of a mountain landscape as a
background layer, then add an image of a plane as another layer on top
of that. But the plane is flying from left to right, which is boring, so
you rotate it (the layer) so it's flying straight up. If you had rotated
the entire image, the mountains would be sideways.
