It's primarily a liability issue - they don't want to dela with lawsuits when people try to pull 10K lbs and tear everything up... so they simply say 'not for towing'.
They are great for recovery points, as long as you don't snatch with them. Being in the center of the bumper, instant force will bend the bumper.
Also - note that they typically don't put safety chain connection points - so if you plan to tow, you'd have to come up with simething to solve this.
