Why two levels of locking?

OK, I've had the new Scenic II for a few days now, and I'm puzzled about the Renault deadlocking thing. Why are there two levels of locking? If the car is more secure with the doors "deadlocked", why not do this as the default? I find it very inconvenient to always have to lock the car (one press of the lock button) and then deadlock it afterwards (double press).

Or am I missing something? Am I supposed to hope that no-one will try to break in while I'm on the supermarket car park, but deadlock it if I think I'm in a dodgy area?
