Default Shower Stall plumbing question

My brother asked me this question and I really didn’t have a decent answer, so I thought I would ask here.

A typical shower fixture has a valve body, shower head and a toe tester. The question is: why would you think Delta (his setup is Delta) says that the toe tester feed from the valve body CAN NOT be re-routed in the wall up to a hand held shower handle unit?

I have my own theories, but I would like to hear what you guys think?

So did you elbow the drop down feed to the toe tester around and up at the valve body to the hand held?

actually what I did was , the pipe drops down 6" a 90% elbow to the right then about 24" horizontal run then 90% elbow up to a regular shower head pipe elbow then out to a second shower head with a diverter for the hand held.
