I don't think it clarified it enough. The main reason to run a heater in the winter is to clear the windshield. You're outside, so you should be dressed for the weather, and thus too much cabin heat will make you uncomfortable. (And you wouldn't really be able to feel those heated seats.) Otherwise what happens when you get stranded for some reason? You freeze to death.
