Why was the Pentax K01 Rubber Card Door designed that way?

One would be hard put to find any merit to the design of the rubber card door on the K01. It is flimsy and will not last, especially because it is precisely where ones thumb stresses it.

In an otherwise sturdily designed camera, why was this feeble design chosen? There must be some kind of a reason. Is there a purpose behind the design which most people are missing?
