The answer is "no, because the people who designed the clients, designed
them for their own purposes." When you've done some programming to make
your own clients, you'll understand how this works.

No, it's the designer (programmer) who made the client, who decides what
it asks for. The server is there to satisfy the needs of the client, not
the other way around.
