[erlang-questions] What is the point of Spawn(Node, Fun) if Node has to have the same module loadable as a client node?

Why create illusion that you are sending a Fun to remote node to execute in
a new process? If client node has to have same module loadable with the Fun
defined as a server node anyway. Why not only spawn(Node, M, F, A) then,
which makes it clear that you are sending a definition of a function call,
not Fun itself.
I am experimenting with distributed Erlang and want it to pass clojures
around "willy nilly", even through network. "Code is data" kinda thing.
