HS10: Why no flash when in silent mode?

I was trying to make some pics of a hummingbird and I think the sound of the focus lock is scaring him/her off, so I put it in silent mode only to discover that the flash doesn't operate when you are in silent mode. (I'm trying to use fill in flash)

I've read the manual and that is exactly what the manual shows, silent mode= no flash. Maybe I can just turn off the focus lock beep only... I haven't checked that yet. Can someone explain why they would program the camera to disable the flash in silent mode?
