I don't know why, but I'm reminded of a bit of doggerel I read years ago:

I sit on the floor and pick my nose
and dream exotic dreams
Of dragons who dress in rubber clothes
and trolls who do it in teams

That's an orally transmitted version of a verse from the Tolkien parody Bored of the Rings.

It seems to be a left arm at that.

Perhaps they assumed the leak will be from an alien intrusion. The suit design is intended to scare the buggars away.
