Basically this is because of hierarchy expansion; the more levels in a hierarchy, the slower it responds. The jump from one-man-indie to even the simplest cooperate-with-X arrangement will fuck you up but good, especially if you try to do it from the start - where it would seem to make sense.
So if you’re going to try and piggyback onto the big boys’ shoulders, do it after most of the timeconsuming work has been done, in an effort to shorten the “assimilate this” portion of the cycle.
