Games recognising external floppy drives

Why is it that with some titles, you can put supplementary disks (i.e. disks other that disk #1 of however many disks make up the game) into external drives and they load fine from the prompt to swap disks, but with others, they'll only be accepted in df0: ?

Some times games will specify "any drive", others expressly specify "df0:" and others leave you to guess what might work!

Lazy programming?

Adding drives takes RAM.

Maybe some of these games are already pushing the 512K Chip RAM so...
