why CRUX has "sh -> bash" symbolic link concept

i notice that my ".bashrc" and ".bash_profile" files just do not work
and then i see i am no longer running BASH but "sh". then i notice,
there is no "sh" , "/bin/sh" is just a symbolic link to BASH. i know
and i can solve my problem using "chsh -s bash user" but i want to
know why CRUX uses "sh -> bash" symbolic link instead of simply using
"/bin/bash" as default shell.
