Why is SQL Server Developer Edition not Supported for use with Blackbaud CRM?

Why is SQL Server Developer Edition not supported for use with Blackbaud CRM even though it has all of the features of the Enterprise Edition?
SQL Server Developer Edition is designed for developers to build and test applications only. Per Microsoft, it is licensed per user for development and test systems only and as such is not to be used for production environments.
 

See the following documentation on SQL Server Editions including comparisons of features for each:
