It is documented how to call a static method when you don't have an instance.  So when you don't (for example, inside a static method on the same class) you use that form (call the method on the class name).

I realize you don't find this clear, but as Raymond says it is time to stop arguing about it; our rule is that the status quo wins when agreement is not reached for a change.

Closing.
