[erlang-questions] Cowboy and fake supervisor

Hi all,
As many of you are familiar with Cowboy there is this practice of
using a 'fake' supervisor and returning it's pid in the start/2 callback of
your application behaviour, this can be seen in all cowboy examples at
why is this supervisor really necessary?

I've tried several things and on most of them the node just hangs when
requesting a stop, however it exits successfully if i return {ok, self()} on
start/2, i'm also unable to explain this behaviour.
Can anyone shed some light in this matter?
