Treasure Cards - When You Play This

Why do Treasure cards with special effects always say "when you play this?" Action and Night cards don't say that, so isn't that kind of implied?

Back when it seemed important for making it clear how the cards work. It would be great if they didn't say that; it eats up space on a bunch of Treasures.

Out of interest, did you contemplate dropping that wording for the new printing?

I've considered it, but if I do it, there will forever be people who have them both ways. They get Prosperity with "when you play" but Empires without it, you know. I don't know, maybe that's fine, but I decided against it when we just slightly tweaked Prosperity's layout.
