To help us with generic usage.

In most cases real deployers are meant to be component deployers,
where we expect only a single attachment by that type,
hence we are able to store it under class name.

It can also be used if you're aware that there will be only single
deployer storing its attachment under that class name.
I agree here with you that this might not be completely obvious,
hence you must use caution and common sense on when you use this single input. ;-)

It helps with the "natural" order (order by inputs/outputs).
It might also help with something you wanted - AbstractAllInputDeployer.
