Why is a transaction (from Account Data Upload) associated with the Name record rather than the whole account?

How does Account Data Upload choose if a transaction should be associated with the whole account or just a specific name?
Account Data Upload picks a name to associate with a transaction in this order of priority:

1. Uploaded Name ID with the Transaction.
2. The name on the Pledge, if this is a Pledge payment.
3. An uploaded name that does not have the Name ID.
4. The Primary Name on the account.
5. Account level (Name_ID 0)

If you want all transactions on the account level, you can ensure this by uploading the Name_ID 0.
