If a team is below the cap early in the season, the LTIR player (and replacements) still irreversibly consume cap space that could be used later in the season - ie pick up a high salary players at the deadline. If the LTIR player truly did not count against the cap, the team could bank a significant cap surplus that would allow them to ice a team whose salaries exceeded the cap later in the season.
