OT, why ask for travel agent on visa application

OT
Some countries ask on visa applications for the name and phone number and address of the travel agent that the applicant has used to arrange either the airflights or the hotels or the tours that he has used or will use as a visitor to their country.
Can you suggest a good reason why they would ask this question. Googling did't work.
