What is the reason for H1-B approved only for one (year)?

The relevant USCIS memo that says that a person can be approved for H-1B status in a licensed profession if the only thing that prevents the person from having the license is the lack of a Social Security number.  However, such H-1B approvals, according to the memo, should be for a year only (the policy being that the person is given a year on the H-1B to complete the licensing requirements - as opposed to being able to practice the job unlicensed for 3 years).
