Stock status is there to encourage sales, not to be an accurate reflection of stock status.

Many years ago, I was involved in the development of an e-commerce web site (that's what they were called back then!), and one of the features of the site was "top 10 products selling today". We assumed it would be determined dynamically, querying the sales database, and the list would be based on sales made. Nope. The list was entirely determined by the marketing department, and was driven by what they needed to sell. It was very common that the "top selling item" had no sales at all.
