Why is the charger cord so short?

Besides cutting costs is there a logical reason behind a cord so short that I cannot set the phone on my desk which is directly next to the wall outlet.
Is there another option so I may use my iPhone at my desk or standing up while it is charging?
As I stated above, it's an EXTENSION cord, not a longer dock cable (there is no longer dock cable available). You connect the male end of the USB extension cord to the AC adapter, and connect the male end of your 3' dock cable to the female end of the USB extension cord.
Or, just get an AC extension cord. Or a powered USB hub for your desk. Or, just unplug the iPhone - it has a battery. Or, use a Bluetooth headset (which is what I do) - then you can get up and walk around.
So many options...
