[erlang-questions] code:load_binary - why there's module as argument

Hi all,
I wonder why code:load_binary() requires module name as one of the
arguments? The function would fail if this name is not equal to the real
module name from the binary, so it can deduce the correct name. Why it does
not allow loading just whatever module from a given binary and return
something like {ok, moduleName} as the result?
