Windows 7: Why have a Bitlocker password when you can just enter the Recovery Key

Why have a Bitlocker password when you can just enter the Recovery Key

Seems redundant. Bitlocker prompts for a password. There's a "forgot password" feature that you can use to paste the Recovery Key if the pwd gets lost. I dunno. To me it just seems like it's just a two password system, but the Recovery Key is more specific to the drive as it uses a Recovery Key identification code.
