It is not just "us". it is the traditional way to look at an
electronics project. Schematic, layout and BOM  contain all the 
information needed to reproduce. Of course, the EDA may keep the 
data in some other form and derive these documents on the fly. But
this would make the work-flow more complicated. You'd have a hard 
time to re-integrate a layout, once it has diverged from the 

This is one of the major blunders of eagle. There is no decent way
