Because it changes the meaning.

It's like saying "I'd like to look at this ship's personnel's
personnel files" (as opposed to that other ship's personnel's
personnel files) or "the High Council is reviewing Captain Kruge's
captain's log" (Qugh HoD HoD QonoS), for disambiguating between the
captain's log that Kruge keeps while on active duty, and his personal
log or other logs which he keeps for other matters.
