Why can you use a Plastic material in a Static study?

I have always wondered why Simulation allows the user to assign a Plastic material in a Static study. Isn't this in 99% of the cases just asking for trouble? Would it not be better if Simulation would warn the user or outright forbid it to be possible?

 

Are there any cases where using a Plastic can be justified for a Static run, if so I'd love to hear people's experiences with this!
